Will downtown Spruce Pine become a destination for artists?
The Mitchell News-Journal has a front page story about last week’s tour of downtown Spruce Pine for artists and entrepreneurs. From the article:
Nearly 50 artists and entrepreneurs attended a tour this past Friday of available buildings and spaces in downtown Spruce Pine.
There were 14 buildings and spaces for either sale or rent on the tour ranging from 600 to 8,000 square feet, $500 to $1,500 a month rent and for sale from $123,000 to $250,000. Spruce Pine Main Street Executive Director Libby Phillips led the tour and provided would-be renters and buyers with information about the properties and property owners, some of whom were on the tour as well.
And you can weigh in: the paper’s weekly poll question asks, “Will downtown Spruce Pine become a destination for artists?” (As of this writing, the no votes outnumber the yes votes.) Take the poll here: http://www.mitchellnews.com/
