#2,776 Speaking to Speakers.
by Erin Napier
We spoke to a group a little different than our usual crowd today: senators and representatives from Virginia to Texas and everywhere in between wanted to hear about why we decided to go back home to our small town and grow our businesses here. The questions they asked afterward weren’t about TV or how HGTV found us like usual, they were about historic preservation tax incentives and how to draw traffic from the interstate to the old downtowns and it felt good to discuss it.
