Bill Barnes said … Charlotte and I attended last night, primarily to hear an update on the Catawba Studios given by Bert Hesse & Chris Cates. Before the presentation got underway, we had an opportunity be meet some of the nice folks that are involved in Loom Coworking, including their director Jennifer Belk. This is a program with a lot of potential for entrepreneurs. Next, we toured the old Center Theater and listened to plans for its renovation by Chip Smith and others. We swore we could hear it crying out to be a performance center for music, drama, dance, etc. We wish them great success. Next, we went on a walking tour of Ft. Mill led by LeAnne Burnett Morse. We were given walking tour maps at our Millstone Park starting point and then commenced to learn about what some of the buildings downtown were originally, about the railroad and the old Walking Bridge, the old Pure Gas Station and other historic structures before concluding our walk at the Ft. Mill History Museum on Clebourne St. It looks to us like Ft. Mill has a bright future in store and a new movie studio might just be its crowning glory. Only time will tell.
