I love old buildings, the way they look, the stories the walls could tell. They are a piece of who we are. This particular building started out as the Red Boiling Springs Bank building. Built in 1928 on the corner of Main and Market Streets, it served the bank until 1968 when a new building was constructed further down Market Street. Since that time, it has served as a barber shop, florist, art gallery and frame shop. For many years it sat vacant. Vacant buildings decay and eventually die.
In the late fall of 2010, Vision 2020 was presented with the opportunity to purchase one of the few historic properties in our downtown area. The seller and Vision 2020 shared a common dream to develop a museum honoring the history and culture of the town.
The goal is to restore the building to its 1928 look and for it to house a heritage museum for the community.
I have heard the stories of how life was for my parents’, grandparents’ and great-grandparents’ generations in our community. Stories that told of their struggles and triumphs, joys and heartaches. My goal is to preserve those stories for future generations through the RBS Heritage Museum.
Please consider donating $19.28 to help us reach that goal. 100 individuals giving $19.28 will help me reach my personal goal of $1,928. Thank you! ~rita
