For over 31 years,

Touch of Class Jewelers has been one of the most trusted names in jewelry in the Dickson Area. After Colonial Village was built in 1974, owners Elmer & Wanda Glass opened Touch of Class Jewelers in 1976. Wanda was owner, manager, buyer & merchandiser for 18½ years. At the time there was one jeweler, one watch repairman & 2 part-time employees. Wanda built the store with hard work, patience and determination. In 1994, Wanda decided to retire, so her niece & husband Teresa & Kenny Perales bought the store. Touch of Class has grown with our community from a small store to a multiple brand jewelry retailer. We have served generations of families as their trusted jeweler. We are committed to make every customer "feel at home" with our personalized service. Our years of experience and services have built a legacy of integrity and trust with our customers.

Teresa, Kenny, Jaclyn

Touch of Class is now a third generation family owned jewelry store with the addition of Teresa and Kenny's daughter, Jaclyn Perales Tomlinson. At Touch of Class Jewelers our mission has always been a tradition of trust, high ethical standards, knowledge of our jewelry products and services, fair pricing and value to our customers.

Our History Editor’s note: The following is a brief overview of the history of Dickson County, gathered together by Alan Ragan using research, the Ragan Family’s Skits and Bits column – written by his grandfather Henry Ragan and now by Alan – and the family histories of longtime county residents.

Dickson County was born The Tennessee General Assembly passed a bill creating Dickson County from portions of Montgomery and Robertson counties on Oct. 25, 1803. The county, the 25th of Tennessee’s 95 counties, was named for William Dickson, a Nashville physician and statesman who served in Congress at the time. Although Dickson never lived in the county named for him, his relatives played roles in its early development.

Nature spurs development The fertile soils and natural resources drew settlers to this area in the early 1790s. North Carolina, Revolutionary War and Tennessee land grants assured large tracts of land at little or no cost to these pioneers. The discovery of iron ore provided the foundation for the area’s first industrial development. In 1793, James Robertson, the “Father of Middle Tennessee,” purchased land on Barton’s Creek. It was on this tract of land that Robertson built the first iron works on Tennessee’s frontier. In 1804, Robertson sold his furnace to Montgomery Bell industrialists. On Aug. 4, 1804, an act of the Tennessee General Assembly created the Town of Charlotte to serve as “The Seat of Dickson County Government.” The county seat is named for Robertson’s wife, Charlotte. The Town of Charlotte was the center of commerce, industry and government until the advent of the Civil War.

The Charlotte Courthouse sometime between 1916 and 1920 before the building was expanded. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE RAGAN FAMILY

Railroad, major roads change county With the completion of the railroad from Nashville to the Tennessee River in the 1860s, the focus shifted to the southern end of the county. Also, the construction of the “Broadway of America,” or U.S. Highway 70, and the construction of Interstate 40 – which both also pass through southern Dickson County – have also shaped the county.

Below, this photograph of downtown Dickson, facing east from the corner of College and Main streets, was taken sometime prior to 1910. . PHOTO COURTESY OF THE RAGAN FAMILY

Other significant dates in Dickson County history MAY 10, 1864 The railroad was finished and the first train passed through Dickson County. The completion of the railroad through the southern part of the county brought about the development and growth of towns like White Bluff, Burns and Dickson. NOVEMBER 4, 1952 Frank G. Clement of Dickson was elected governor for the first time. He served as governor from 1953-1959 and again from 1963-1967. SEPTEMBER 24, 1966 Gov. Frank G. Clement cut the ribbon at the Tennessee River Bridge on the opening of the new Interstate 40, linking East and West Tennessee. The superhighway was started on Sept. 18, 1958 and took eight years to build. MAY 9, 1959 The first Old Timers Day as we now know it was held in Dickson on a vacant lot on Church Street across from Ragan & Hamilton, General Contractors. The day was organized by several people, including Warren G. Medley, Vernon “Red” Hamilton, Henry V. Ragan. JUNE 2, 1965 Hampton High School’s final graduation exercises were held. This event brought an end to segregation in the county’s schools. DECEMBER 9, 1968 An announcement was made by Dickson County School officials that 80 acres of land had been purchased to build the new Dickson County Senior High School, bringing about the consolidation of Dickson, White Bluff and Charlotte high schools in 1972. DECEMBER 19, 2003 The Water Authority of Dickson County opened the state’s most technologically advanced water treatment plant. It opened on the Cumberland River in northern Dickson County. The $29 million plant has the capacity to treat more than 20 million gallons of water per day. SOURCE: Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

With the assistance of the Dickson County Industrial Development Board, the local utility companies, local and state governments and volunteers, the chamber helps attract new industries to Dickson County. Dickson County, with its close proximity to Nashville and Interstate 40, is an ideal location for new industry, according to chamber President and CEO David Hamilton.

The chamber handles an average of 450 calls monthly from individuals and companies seeking information on businesses, services or local events. Packages are sent out weekly to people and businesses seeking to relocate to or visit Dickson County. The chamber also recruits through its Web site www.dicksoncountychamber.com. The chamber’s most recent initiative, the “Buy Local” campaign, hopes to encourage and educate residents on the importance of shopping in the county. The chamber has sold over 1,000 “Buy Local” t-shirts to local businesses to help promote the campaign. Monthly coffees and luncheons are held to facilitate networking and keep members abreast of important local, state and federal issues.

The Dickson County Chamber of Commerce building is located at 119 Highway 70 East in Dickson. FILE PHOTO

MEMBERS AND STAFF There are 400 chamber members and a 15-member board of directors. Hamilton manages the office and staff, recruits new industry, assists current manufacturers and business people and oversees the industrial park.

Welcome to Dickson Greeters Message to all Dickson County newcomers: When Helen or Joan Rial knock on your home door, be excited. You are about to receive a bag full of gifts and lots of information about the county. The two women make up Welcome to Dickson Greeters and they love making new friends.“We just try to make them feel comfortable and at home,” Helen Rial said. “We take a little bit different approach because we’re answering to ourselves and to the merchants.” Former operators of Dickson’s Welcome Wagon, the Rials had to wait a year due to a contractual agreement with the national company before they could begin the Welcome to Dickson Greeters in 1999. “I just thought that’s what made it special was the home personal visits,” said Helen Rial, who operated the local Welcome Wagon for nearly 25 years. “We decided to start our own thing going into the homes like we used to. We try to make it a little more personal. It’s just local, it’s just Dickson County.” The Rials provide county information in the form of maps, pamphlets, a Dickson County Fact Book and other giveaways. “We say it’s like a neighbor visiting a neighbor, it’s not like we’re giving a commercial,” Helen said. “It doesn’t take that long but of course we both are talkers so we have a tendency to get off track a lot. Joan said the majority of newcomers are excited to see her or her mother-in-law because the visits provide so much information – and coupons/gift cards. “We have a civic packet too that we give out that has voting registration forms, a map of Dickson County, anything about anything in the area.” Helen said. “Anything that is nonprofit that is a public thing we put in our civic packet.” Newcomers are given invitation cards from local merchants for free gifts. Helen said she has plenty of contacts that let her know when newcomers arrive in the area. “We have no problems getting names,” she said. Helen said transplants from bigger cities are “amazed” by the visits. “For the people who are total strangers, especially if they’ve come from a big city…they are just so thrilled,” she said. For more information, call Joan Rial at 441-3341 or Helen Rial at 446-2226.

The county library has a genealogy room with a staff genealogist and a computer lab with 22 workstations connected to the Internet. The library was created in 1931 by members of the 20th Century Club. When they opened their Tamara Hammer doors in the basement of the First Baptist Church, there were only 50 books. In 1933, space was provided for the collection in the newly dedicated War Memorial Building. The County Court accepted responsibility for the library in January 1934, and in 1948 the library became a member of the Tennessee Regional Library Program. The library moved to its current location on Henslee Drive in Dickson in the summer of 2002.

Contact Information Where: 206 Henslee Drive in Dickson When: 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday, Friday and Saturday; 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday; and 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Wednesday. The library is closed on Sunday. Phone: (65) 446-8293 Director: Tamara Hammer Genealogist: Jeff Wills

Dickson County Muncipal Airport The Dickson County Municipal Airport-Pack Field caters primarily to executives and aviation enthusiasts.

Recent improvements to the airport include repaving the ramp areas, and looking forward to the GPS WAAS approach. Liberty Aviation LLC is the fixed-base operator (FBO) for the Dickson County Municipal Airport-Pack Field through a contract with the Dickson Municipal Airport Authority. Liberty Aviation is a partnership of Ann and Larry Hansen, of Vanleer, and Jeff Tipton, who formerly worked for two previous FBO’s. Tipton serves as director of operations, overseeing the day-to-day management of the facility.

Dickson County Help Center The Dickson County Help Center is sometimes the only resource that some county residents have to obtain food, clothing and financial assistance. The Help Center in Dickson provides aid to Dickson County residents who are experiencing a temporary financial crisis. The aid comes in the form of food, clothing, prescription medication, help with utility bills and temporary Dale Spicer shelter. The center also serves families in Dickson County who have lost everything due to fire or other acts of nature. The center maintains a significant food bank, which is stocked through private donations and special food drives conducted by local schools, the U.S. Postal Service (letter carriers) and other organizations. Kroger, Odom’s Tennessee Quality Foods and Second Harvest Food Bank also make regular donations. According to Dale Spicer, the director of the Dickson County Help Center, the need continues to grow for the center’s services. Spicer said the Help Center’s mission is to help people improve their lives, not to empower them to use their money unwisely and then expect the Help Center to continuously help them.

VOLUNTEERS, THRIFT STORE AND FUNDING The center depends largely on volunteers, and more are always needed.The Help Center operates a thrift store where donated items are sold at bargain prices. Anyone is welcome to shop at the thrift store. The store revenue pays for the Help Center’s overhead. This enables 100 percent of monetary donations and the remaining revenue from the store to be used to aid those in need. In the past, the Help Center has received various amounts of funding from the United Way of Dickson County, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, Dickson County government, and the city of Dickson. The majority of funding comes from local churches, civic organizations, businesses and private individuals. The Dickson Electric System, the Greater Dickson Gas Authority and the Water Authority of Dickson County all have programs where their customers can add a dollar or more to their utility bill each month and that money is donated to the Help Center.

Humane Society of Dickson County Imagine the staff, food, veterinary services and supplies you would need if you took care of more than 3,000 animals. That is the level of resources required to sustain the Humane Society of Dickson County, which cares for more than 250 animals per month. Thanks to generous foster families and increased adopt-a-thons staffed by volunteers, the humane society’s adoption rate has continued to increase over the past few years. However, the department continues to see a rise in homeless pets. Starting this year, the humane society began accepting pets for adoption for a small fee. The fee helps to cover the costs of necessary tests, vaccinations and spay/neuter for animals. The fee is $20 per animal, or $30 for a litter. Not just any animal will be accepted. The pets will have to be healthy, friendly and social. Feral animals will be turned away and directed to animal control services. When they run out of capacity for the volume of homeless and abandoned animals brought to their door, their shelter staff must undertake the heart-wrenching task of euthanizing animals to make adequate room. No humane society wants to euthanize any animal, but this is the reality for Dickson County. Residents can help by spaying and neutering pets to help reduce the pet overpopulation problem and put an end to the euthanasia of healthy animals. Citizens also can help by fostering an animal. Foster care is an integral key to finding new homes for the animals. Foster families care for animals until they can be adopted locally, or sent to one of numerous rescue groups. All animal abuse cases in Dickson County are now referred to Dickson’s animal control

26

officers (441-9591). To stop abuse before it starts, the staff frequently teaches adults and children about responsible pet ownership and humane treatment for all living creatures. The staff and volunteers visit local schools, civic groups and other community organizations to educate about responsible treatment of animals and the mission of the Humane Society of Dickson County. The HSDC receives minimal government support – less than 5 percent of the operating budget funds come from Dickson County government, and no funding whatsoever is received from the local city governments. Because of this, HSDC must rely on the kindness of Middle Tennesseans and local fundraisers to survive.

Contact Information When: Open for adoptions Wednesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Closed to the public Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Where: 410 Eno Rd. in Dickson For more information, call (615) 446-PETS or go online, www.dicksonhumane.org

Dickson County UT Extension UT Extension provides a gateway to the University of Tennessee as the outreach unit of the Institute of Agriculture. With an office in every county, UT Extension delivers educational programs and research-based information to citizens throughout the state of Tennessee. Working with farmers, families, youth and communities, Extension helps improve people's lives by addressing problems and issues at the local, state and national levels. Educational programs are open to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, sex or disability. AGRICULTURE AND NATURAL RESOURCES UT Extension programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources are focused on maintaining the competitiveness of agriculture, enhancing environmental stewardship, protecting agriculture communities from natural or induced threats, while also improving the viability of rural communities. While livestock and row crops are still the backbone of agriculture in Dickson County, there seems to be a strong shift to more urban forms of agriculture. Lawns, gardens and landscapes are becoming the topics of questions directed toward UT Extension in Dickson County more and more every day. This is truly a sign of a changing environment. Dickson County also boasts a very strong and continuously growing Farmers Market. The Dickson County Farmers Market is located at 284 Cowan Road, behind the County Ambulance and Emergency Management Service. At the market you can find products from jams and jellies to bee and traditional produce, as well as homemade crafts. Livestock sales make up 75 percent of all agriculture crops sold in Dickson County, totaling over $10 million annually. The largest section of that

commodity group goes to the beef cattle industry. Dickson County is home to well over 23,000 head of cattle (including calves) making it the largest agriculture industry in Dickson County. To promote the sustainability of this industry several programs are offered: - Master Beef Producer: This is a multi-session program addressing all issues related to raising beef cattle, from pasture and land management to carcass merit and everything in between. - Forage Classes: Today’s economic times are hard on everyone including the beef industry. Making cattle work on forages is a must to remain profitable in today’s economic window. - Marketing Options: The days of taking cattle to the weekly sale to remain profitable are over. Producers must aggressively market their cattle in non-traditional ways to capture every penny possible. Tobacco is still a very large crop in Dickson County, totaling over $2.2 million in annual sales. Corn and soybeans can be found in Dickson County, however they are not as plentiful as beef cattle and tobacco. Soil testing is the most important step in any agricultural practice. Whether you are planting a garden, improving your lawn or producing a forage crop, a soil test should be your first step. UT Extension offers soil testing for a minimal fee. UT Extension provides solutions to your problems no matter how big or small. Our network of subject matter specialists at UT and other land grant universities has the information and resources to answer the most difficult questions. For more information about agricultural programs, contact Brad Greenfield at (615) 446-2788, or via e-mail at jgreenfi@utk.edu. Find us on the web at www.utextension.tennessee.edu/dickson and “like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dicksoncountyextension.

Almost 70 4-H Clubs hold educational meetings monthly, mostly on a classroom basis during school hours or during “activity” schedule at the middle and high schools. There is also a club for families who have chosen to home-school, which meets monthly. Membership is open to young people in grades four through 12. The national 4-H emblem is a green four-leaf clover with a white “H” on each leaf. The H’s stand for head, heart, hands and health. As the only youth development program with ties to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the state land grant university, the mission of 4-H is to produce self-directing, competent young people to become contributing members of society. Members have the opportunity to select from a list of 26 4-H projects, which relate to such subjects as agriculture, home economics, communication/personal skills, citizenship/service learning, health/wellness, environment/natural resources conservation, and workforce preparation. In Dickson County, the most popular 4-H projects are: Companion Animals, Line & Design, Horse, Photography, and Wildlife. Members may also participate in educational activities at their monthly school meetings including public speaking, demonstrations, posters and baking contests. Emphasis is placed on group participation and the enhancement of self-esteem. Summer camps continue to be popular activities with large numbers of young people participating each year. Day camps

30

and 4-H workshops focusing on Line & Design and Rocketry are offered during spring and fall school breaks. Livestock groups are still active, and youth aren’t required to own livestock in order to participate in project groups and/or judging team training and competition. Current project groups include beef, horse, goat, poultry, dog, line & design, wildlife, forestry and shooting sports. Character education in Dickson County is implemented through the 4-H Youth Development program in partnership with the county’s Education Edge Steering Committee. The Six Pillars of Character are emphasized in the CHARACTER COUNTS! framework. In collaboration with Education Edge and the Chamber of Commerce, all ninth-grade students in Dickson County participate in Reality Check as a part of their Transition to High School course at either DCHS or CWHS. Reality Check is a 4-H learning activity which gives students the opportunity to experience the financial responsibilities of “real life.” Each student is randomly assigned an occupation, family situation and a corresponding monthly salary. Students interact with community volunteers who work at the various stations in “Realville” (housing, grocery, utilities, etc.) to make appropriate expenditures for one month. Older 4-H’ers in junior and senior high have the opportunity to participate in various conferences and camps on the state, regional and national levels. Citizenship, leadership, wildlife conservation, electric energy, and personal development are among the areas of emphasis at these special 4-H events. Youth Leadership Dickson County is a series of experiential 4-H Youth Development activities taught in the “Service Learning – Youth Leadership” course at Creek Wood High School and Dickson County High School. The class runs throughout the school year with 20 students per class. Participants develop personal skills while learning about the community through tours, demonstrations, guest speakers and other “hands-on” activities. Parents and other volunteers are always needed to assist Extension agents with activities. Project leaders share their knowledge and skills in one particular area, such as sewing, dog, horse, shooting sports, etc. with interested 4-H’ers. They meet with small groups once, twice or at regular intervals to teach specific skills, or to prepare for upcoming activities like judging team competition.

Byrd Armstrong won the 2010 Liars Contest after spinning tall tales about audience members.

Old Timers Day Last year’s Old Timers Day festival kicked off a five-year theme “All Roads Lead Home,” spotlighting a different county city each year. The 53rd annual festival in 2011 will celebrate White Bluff and is scheduled to begin Friday, May 6. This year’s parade will feature floats displaying a progression through the ages. “The Dickson County Old Timers Day Committee extends an invitation to the folks of Middle Tennessee to visit Dickson County the first weekend of May, and join us in honoring those who make up the core of this community, Old Timers,” said Kay Rainey, OTD committee president. In 2010, the festival was set to celebrate Charlotte, but the parade and Saturday festivities were canceled due to the historic flooding in May. Several indoor events were able to take place however, including the Ms. Old Timers Day pageant, won by Ann Gilliam Pinnow, the Liars Contest, won by Byrd Armstrong, and the Civitan Club’s pancake breakfast at Dickson First Methodist Church. The Grace Broadcasting-sponsored Solid Gospel 105 Homecoming Jubilee also took place Friday evening at Dickson Cumberland Presbyterian Church, with a standing-room-only crowd. Next year, Burns will be the featured city, followed by a festival commemorating both Slayden and Vanleer, and then Dickson. Old Timers Day always takes place the first weekend in May. A Web site for the event, created by Matt and Sharon Taylor of Space Acres, provides a source of information and guidance for the festival. You can visit the site at www.dicksoncountyoldtimersday.com. As the date nears, more event news and a detailed schedule will be provided on the site. OLD TIMERS DAY TRADITIONS, ACTIVITIES The Old Timers Day festivities begin Friday night with the Ms. Old Timers contest, the Liars Contest and the Homecoming Jubilee. One of the most popular events is the Liars Contest, when contestants compete to tell the most amusing, tallest tales they can imagine. The Mrs. Old Timers Pageant is also always a favorite of festival-goers as some of the loveliest of Dickson County’s more mature women vie for the trophy. The contestants tell of their favorite memories and speak about the pride they take in their family and their community. Phillip Chambers of Grace Broadcasting is presently working to secure a larger facility for this year's Homecoming Jubilee, which is expected to bring even more folks into Dickson on Friday night. Bluegrass shows have been held on Main Street in front of

Ragan’s Friendly Neighbor Store for years, and in 2009 an all-day gospel concert was held. This year’s musical entertainment will offer three stages for musical performances – a gospel music stage, a stage to highlight local talent, and the Garland BuickGMC stage offering gospel, bluegrass, country, rock, etc. Quilt shows and a Saturday morning pancake breakfast are other popular traditions, and the antique car and tractor displays are always well attended. The NHC Relay For Life team will sponsor a 5K run Saturday morning. Vance Smith's Grand Old Hatchery puts on an Old Timers show Saturday night. Also that evening, the Tennessee City Mini-Tractor Pull will take place at the Dickson County Fairgrounds. The Robert Spicer Memorial Dance Competition is scheduled Saturday as well, in the War Memorial Building. Spicer is a mainstay of Old Timers Day, always keeping the crowd entertained and involved. The Old Timers Day Turkey Shoot brings all ages out for a morning of fun, and the living history demonstrators fill the grounds of the War Memorial Building. OTD festivities include a wide variety of arts, crafts and great food. But the highlight of the weekend, at least judging by public turnout, is the Saturday morning parade. People lineup on the Dickson streets to watch some of their favorite old timers riding on floats, riding horses, driving antique cars or fire trucks or carrying flags. Dixie Kerr, White Bluff’s events coordinator, said the town’s floats this year will be presented with a chronological theme. “It’s going to be a progression through time. It will start out way old, and by the time you get to the last float it’ll be modern times,” Kerr said. The Clement Railroad Hotel Museum in downtown Dickson will display artifacts from White Bluff’s history later this year. Town Historian Tony England is working to assemble a brief history of the town for this display. “The mission statement of Old Timers Day was adopted many years ago – To honor and recognize ‘Old Timers’ past and present for their contributions of service to country, state and community,” said Rainey, “and to remind younger generations of the sacrifice needed to continue this commitment to future generations.”

Dickson County Fair The Dickson County Fair, an 86-year tradition in the county, has traditionally started on Labor Day and features the fair entertainment locals have come to expect – pageants, rides, games, livestock, trucks, tractors and a demolition derby. The fair has a special daily, offering wristbands for unlimited rides or “carload night” where everyone in the car gets in for about $25 total. Also, a favorite of visitors, and particularly parents, is the Fairest of the Fair beauty pageant that goes from infants to teens. The fair, as it has for decades, features livestock and farm implement shows and crop barns. The Dickson County Fair is one of only a handful of county fairs in the state that are handicap-accessible in all areas including, parking, restrooms, the midway and the bleachers.

Dickson County’s Relay For Life Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event that offers everyone in the community a chance to participate in the fight against cancer. During the event, teams of individuals “camp out” at Dickson County High School and take turns walking or running around the track. The 2011 event is 5 p.m. Friday, June 10 through 5 a.m. Saturday, June 11. The goal this year is $170,000. The event raised $163,000 in 2009. Each team has a booth at its campsite featuring food, games or other activities for the entire family to enjoy. Prizes are awarded in a number of categories, including the bestdecorated booth. Teams are made up of people from businesses, churches, hospitals, schools and service clubs. Often, a group of friends will also join together as a team. Each team will hold various fundraisers from now until the Relay For Life event, such as garage sales, car washes and dinners, among others. On the night of the event, a number of ceremonies will be held, including the survivor’s lap where cancer survivors walk around the track and the luminary celebration where luminaria are lit and a list of names are read aloud, honoring cancer survivors and memorializing cancer patients who have lost the fight. Luminaria can be purchased at the event for $10. Event chairperson this year is Janice Shelton. Co-chair is Mary Littleton. All of the funds raised through Relay For Life go to the American Cancer Society.

Festivals Apple Butter Festival The annual Apple Butter Festival, hosted at Crossroads Church in White Bluff in the fall, has grown over its nearly 20year history. In 2010, the event had a record crowd and made – and sold – about 260 gallons of hand-stirred apple butter. The festival also includes a live band, hayrides, a candlemaking workshop, a weaver, a blacksmith, silent auction and an inflatable castle for kids. Attendees and booth workers dress in period costume. And there are plenty of concessions as well. Proceeds from most sales go to Crossroads Church.

Dickson County Farmer’s Market

Charlotte Festival

Dickson County boasts a very strong and continuously growing Farmers Market. Formerly located behind the library, the Dickson County Farmers Market has relocated to 284 Cowan Road, behind the county Ambulance and Emergency Management Service. At the market you can find products from jams and jellies to bee and traditional produce, as well as homemade crafts. The Farmers Market was started just a few years ago, but continues to grow and attract sellers and buyers of fresh locally grown produce. The market opens in mid-April and runs throughout the summer. Several venders offer seasonal produce from early April into autumn. The Dickson County Chamber of Commerce and the Five River Resource Conservation Development spearheaded the event and the UT Extension Office oversees the market. For more information, call Brad Greenfield at 446-2788 or e-mail jgreenfi@utk.edu. Information about the Farmer's Market is also routinely posted online at www.dicksoncountyag.com.

The Charlotte Festival, a tradition since the 1970s, is held in August on the historic Charlotte Square with live music, activities for children and a parade. In the morning, the Annual Red Hawk 5K Run, hosted by the Creek Wood High School's Virtual Enterprise Class, is held. The festival includes food vendors, inflatables for the children, a cake walk, a toy walk, bingo at First Federal Bank and other activities. A pancake breakfast at Charlotte Fagan United Methodist Church is also held in the morning.

Promise Land Festival The Promise Land Festival, held annually in June, celebrates the heritage of a historic African-American community near Charlotte. The event takes place on land adjoining the Promise Land School, which was placed on the national register of historic places in 2007. There is a hat contest with “fanciest” and “fittest” among the categories. Musical groups and dancers often perform. Freshly grilled and cooked food is also plentiful at the event.

White Bluff Main Street Festival The White Bluff Main Street Festival is held annually in downtown White Bluff in October along Main Street with dozens of booths displaying arts and crafts, food and demonstrations. Spicy foods are normally abundant, including chili, jambalaya and barbequed sandwiches. Live music is performed throughout the day.

44

The annual Gray Boys Old Time Wheat Threshing draws visitors every July to Virginia and Earl Gray’s Hill Top Farm in Dickson. Fires and pits burn for hot dogs and blacksmithing. Children are given rides in wagons pulled by small tractors. Adults and kids are carried around the grounds by huge horses pulling a flatbed wagon. Antique tractors are on display along with restored and newer tractors and other farm implements from back in the day. And, of course, the giant, old-time wheat thresher is the center of attention. Live music is also part of the event.

The Dickson County Courthouse on the Charlotte Square is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is the oldest courthouse still in use as a courthouse in Tennessee. FRANK SMITH/THE HERALD

History On Aug. 4, 1804, less than a year after Dickson County was created, Charlotte was named the county seat. The first group of county organizational leaders, known as the Dickson County Quarterly County, also met in 1804. The commission was reduced from 24 legislators to the current 12-person body in 2002.

About the Dickson County Commission and Mayor • The 12 members of the Dickson County Commission are elected by county residents every four years. • Seven new members were elected during the 2010 General Election, and eight new members were elected in 2006. • Two commission meetings are held each month: A work session on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m., and the official monthly meeting on the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. Both meetings are held on the second floor of the commission chambers in the Courthouse Annex in downtown Charlotte. • County Mayor Bob Rial was elected by the County Commission to serve as their chairman in 2010, following his election by popular vote as mayor. Formerly, the commission chairman was Commissioner Buford Reed.

Burns Burns is a growing and in some areas affluent community that still maintains its small-town atmosphere. Planned Unit Developments bringing over 500 new homes are possible over the next decade. Work on a new recreational park off Highway 96 is beginning this year. A new middle school adjacent to the park is also expected in the near future. Donna’s Place restaurant and recently constructed Dollar General store are popular local businesses. Burns also has a U.S. Post Office and Stuart-Burns Elementary School. Recreational activities extend to the Burns Little League baseball and the Burns Cowboys football youth programs, which currently play at the town’s baseball and football fields across from Town Hall. Youngsters can also participate in the South Dickson Junior Pro Basketball League, which plays several games at the old Burns school gym (in the same complex with the current baseball/football facilities). For get-togethers, the Burns Community Center at 106 College Street can be rented any day of the week by contacting Town Hall. Burns also offers its own police and fire departments, staffed with full-time and part-time personnel. The Burns Fire Department employs four full-time firefighters, with 20 volunteers. Melvin Sullivan serves as fire chief. The Burns Police Department staffs seven officers, who work in tandem with active reserves. Bryan Johnson serves as police chief. The town commission meets at 7 p.m. the first Monday of every month at Town Hall. For more information, visit the town’s Web site at www.cityofburnstn.com.

Information

History Burns was first known as Grade 42. In 1862, a railroad was constructed from Nashville to Johnsonville, located on the Tennessee River. The railroad went through a settlement area called Grade 42, now known as Burns. In 1866, the name was changed to Burns Station. The name was in honor of Capt. Michael Burns, who had commanded a detachment encamped at Grade 42 during the Civil War. In 1882 the government deleted the word “Station” and the settlement became known as Burns. The first pioneer to settle in the Burns area was Billy Austin and his family, who built a cabin on Beaver Dam Creek in 1803. Tennessee Electric Power and Light Company furnished electricity for Burns prior to the formation of the Tennessee Valley Authority. The generator was located in a building, locally known as “the power house,” at the intersection of state Route 47 and Main Street. The building remains and was formerly used as Dob Bradford’s barber shop. The Public Well, a well-known landmark in Burns, was drilled in 1910 by Flay Bibb. The well is 103 feet deep and is located at Highway 47 and Main Street. The Amanda Richardson House is the oldest existing building in Burns. The Richardson House is located at state Route 47 and Meek Avenue.

Charlotte Nearly everywhere you turn, you’ll come face to face with history in Charlotte, Dickson County’s seat. Charlotte retains much of its 19th- and 20th-century charm. Over the last 25 years business and residences have been restored or maintained on the Charlotte Square, which bustles with activity nearly every day. People are there to attend court, get a haircut, browse for books or grab a mug of coffee. The square is the center of activity for the city, and also includes the county government offices. Charlotte is home to Charlotte Elementary and Middle schools. Also, Charlotte is the location for one of the county’s top 10 employers in Eubank Asphalt Paving and Sealing. Much African-American history is tied to Charlotte, and Charlotte’s black community annually comes together to celebrate their roots, reunite with friends and family who’ve left the area, and to help those in the community in need. The Charlotte Picnic, which celebrated for the 108th time this year, has taken place on the third weekend in August for decades. One of Charlotte’s oldest institutions is the McGavock Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Dotson Street. The original church building was erected in 1898 in the former Celeste Heights area.

History Early settlers were drawn to present-day Dickson County by the soil, natural resources and brown iron ore. Settlers in the late 1700s established a small frontier settlement known as Town Creek. Today that area is Charlotte. On Nov. 3, 1803, the state General Assembly created the County of Dickson. On Aug. 4, 1804, the Tennessee General Assembly created the Town of Charlotte to serve as the “Seat of Dickson County Government” naming Robert Dunning, Sterling Brewer, John Davidson, Montgomery Bell and George Clark as the first town commissioners. Their first formal meeting was December 1806, the same year the town’s first post office opened. In January 1814, John Humphries was paid $2 “for drawing a plan of the Town of Charlotte.” The plan consisted of 59 lots and 11 streets around a public square. Charlotte flourished from the 1820s to 1840s. In 1843, John Eubank, who served in the state House of Representatives, introduced a bill to locate the state capitol in Charlotte. Of the 74 House members present, Charlotte received 17 votes for becoming the state capitol, but failed to win a majority. Charlotte’s prosperity in the early 19th century was impacted by two events. First, on May 30, 1830, a devastating tornado hit Charlotte. Next, in November 1863, the Civil War came to Charlotte. No major battles occurred, but skirmishes and guerrilla warfare were common. Confiscated residences housed Federal officers, troops camped around the square and farms were raided for supplies. White Bluff, Burns and Dickson grew along the railroad, leaving Charlotte comparatively unchanged. The Dickson County Courthouse in Charlotte, built in 1833, remains the oldest courthouse still in use as a courthouse in Tennessee. In 1977, the Charlotte Courthouse Square Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the Tennessee Historical Commission.

Cumberland Furnace History In 1803, Cumberland Furnace was an industrialized community with foundries, converting iron ore into pig iron. James Robertson purchased 640 acres on Barton’s Creek from a Revolutionary War private and turned it into an iron plantation, which today is unincorporated Cumberland Furnace. The iron works shut down in 1942 and Cumberland Furnace slipped back into a quiet existence.

Dickson The city of Dickson is the central hub of activity in Dickson County. Though not the county seat, Dickson receives the most traffic as a result of its proximity to Interstate 40 and having more residents and businesses than anywhere else in the county. There are several grocery and retail stores as well as fast food and fine dining. The Roxy Movie Theater on Highway 46 is a popular hangout spot for area teens and movie-goers from around the area. The Clement Hotel Railroad Museum in downtown Dickson features information and relics from the annals of Dickson County’s history, and former state Gov. Frank G. Clement, who was born in the building in 1920. And the War Memorial Building on Walnut Street is a fascinating architectural marvel and center of

activity for several local events year-round. A $1.5-million renovation of the city’s historic downtown began in March. Renovation work will extend along Main Street from Walnut to Murrell streets. Improvements will include expanding sidewalk space, planting trees, converting a portion of Main Street to one-way traffic, unifying the lighting, installing a medallion that will commemorate Dickson’s founding, among others. The Renaissance Center, a hard-to-miss city fixture along state Route 46 since 1999, now has Austin Peay State University and Nashville State Community College teaching post-secondary courses, including classes that lead to a fouryear degree.

Downtown Dickson

• Main Street, from the intersection of College to Walnut streets, will be converted to a one-way road, allowing for the eight-foot sidewalks to take more precedence. • The streets will be lit with uniform lighting from 16-foot poles featuring arms for seasonal banners. All lighting and other wiring will be underground, making for much more uniform appearance. • Construction will be done in small chunks at a time along Main Street so as not to interrupt all business activities. • Downtown Dickson renovation will help increase pedestrian traffic with expanded sidewalks and a conversion from two lane to one-lane traffic, among several other changes. • Work was set to begin on the project on March 7, and by contract, will be completed within eight months.

History In the early 1800s, several iron furnaces and forges were located near the area that today is Dickson. This was during the iron ore-mining boom. On Dec. 3, 1860, William Crutcher purchased 533 acres for more than $2,000. He then constructed the first building – 16-by-16 feet and made of log – in what is now Dickson near where Bank of Dickson stands on north Main Street.

Smeedsville Around 1862, one of the men in charge of railroad construction from Nashville to Johnsonville on the Tennessee River was civil engineer E.C. Smeed. His office was where Dickson is today. In his honor, the name of the rail stop was called Smeedsville. On May 10, 1864, the railroad was finished and the first train passed through Dickson County headed west out of Nashville to the Tennessee River. The train was carrying a load of Union troops and Andrew Johnson, military governor of Tennessee.

Dickson established Crutcher eventually defaulted on payment of his land and in September 1867 the court ordered the land to be sold at public auction. On Oct. 7, 1867, records show Conrad Berringer purchased the land for $5,200 and at once began to establish a town. Within six years, the town had been established, platted, chartered and the name changed from Smeedsville to Dickson. The name Dickson officially came into being on Jan. 6, 1873, as a petition was filed with the Clerk of the Chancery Court in Charlotte to establish the town of Dickson. On Dec. 2, 1873, the charter was granted for the town of Dickson.

70

Charter abolished to prohibit liquor sales? With a population of nearly 800, the citizens of Dickson voted to abolish its charter on March 16, 1883. It is believed this was done to close the growing number of saloons in town – state law prohibited the sale of liquor in unincorporated towns. The act to abolish the charter was signed by Gov. Ben McMillin on March 19, 1883. The town existed in an unincorporated manner until it was re-chartered on April 22, 1899, with a population of a little over 1,300 individuals.

Two County Courthouses A county election was held on Sept. 1, 1898 to determine if the county seat and courthouse would be moved from Charlotte to Dickson. The majority were for the move. Still, a compromise was made in the state legislature to divide the county into seven equal districts and have a courthouse in both Dickson and Charlotte. In 1925, the Courthouse in Dickson was condemned by an engineer hired by the State of Tennessee. On April 26, 1926, Dickson County leaders voted against the funding of a new courthouse in Dickson. On July 9, 1928, work crews began demolishing the old courthouse in Dickson. In 1931, a bill was passed abolishing the circuit court of the town of Dickson.

History Slayden is named after a prominent Virginia family who settled in the Bartons Creek and Woods Valley area in the early 1800s near where the town is today. Timber and later tobacco appears were the primary draw. Even today, timber and tobacco are important sources of income for those living in the Slayden area. The town was platted in 1898 by Robert B. Stone. Slayden was incorporated in 1913. The charter set up a form of government that is still in effect today. The incorporation of Slayden occurred 10 years after the L & N Railroad had established what was known as the Clarksville Mineral Branch. Slayden was originally called Slaydenview, but at the time the railroad made its way from Clarksville to Dickson, the official postal name became Slayden. The first school in Slayden was organized in the 1890s. That building burned in 1929. The present Slayden Community Center was rebuilt after the fire. Grades 1-8 were taught until 1962, when the students were transferred to Vanleer. The Great Depression caused the railroad to be taken up in 1936. In 1984, the train depot was bought by a developing company, and moved to Grinderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Switch to make it a Minnie Pearl museum.

Vanleer Vanleer is a growing town in Dickson County. In the last few years, several new businesses have arrived, including Dollar General, TriCounty Farmers Restaurant and the Dutch Country Kitchen. Also off Highway 49, which doubles as the town main street, are Jarman’s Market, Johnson’s Market and a U.S. Post Office. The town also provides a volunteer fire department, and has an Advanced Life Support ambulance on call 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday.

History The town of Vanleer, incorporated in 1915, was named for Anthony Wayne Van Leer. He was a large landholder, farming over 20,000 acres in what’s Vanleer today. Cloverdale Academy, located on Bell Hollow Road, was a college founded in the 1840s and operated by Professor Bell. The college continued until 1899. One of the first schools in Vanleer was called Ebenezer School. It was located on the Oscar Bull place on Old Dry Hollow Road. A second school – a one-room log building – named Ebenezer was built later on Highway 49 next to Hamilton Cemetery. Antioch School was built later across the street from Hamilton Cemetery on the Victor Wall farm. The two-story Vanleer Junior High was built at the intersection of Highway and Cedar Creek. Classes moved to a brick building in 1941 at the intersection of Highway 49 and School Road. Vanleer Elementary School was built across from Vanleer Town Hall in 2003.

The Walter A. Bell Vanleer Municipal Building, located on Highway 49 in Vanleer, is home to Town Hall, the volunteer fire department and the community center. JOHN BAILEY/THE HERALD

White Bluff White Bluff is a growing community situated in the northeast part of Dickson County. In recent years, the town of about 3,000 people has been planning for growth that is expected to hit within the next 5-10 years. Since 2009, the town has made a number of improvements, including establishing a library, renovating sidewalks along Main Street, replacing old sewer lines and creating a growth plan. In February 2011, the town established its first ambulance unit, located at the fire station. Town officials had long fought to get an ambulance stationed there, but until recently, county officials had deemed it financially infeasible. Mayor Linda Hayes said having an ambulance in town would provide services to residents for years to come. The police force changed vehicles in 2010, from the traditional Ford Crown Victoria to a progressive hybrid, the Toyota Prius. Assistant Police Chief Mike Holman came up with the idea as a cost-savings measure to cut back on fuel. As the year draws closer to autumn, weekends in White Bluff are full of activities and festivals. Each year, residents flock to the Apple Butter Festival and the Main Street Festival. Schools in town are White Bluff Elementary and William James Middle.

History The town of White Bluff was incorporated in 1869. At that time it had a slightly different name: Whitebluffs. The name was derived from the white bluffs overlooking â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turnbull Creekâ&#x20AC;? where the army had set up camp. On June 1, 1937, the town postmaster, James K. StClair had the name officially changed to White Bluff. With the railroad and U.S. Highway 70 going through White Bluff, the town grew. In 1946, there was a fire that destroyed much of the town. The fire went across both Highway 70 and Taylor Town Road, taking several businesses on the south side, buildings on the west side of Taylor Town Road and on the east side of the James Building it took the Methodist Church. A short time later another fire took an apartment building on Jackson St., killing two children. There was no fire department and so Zollie Bibb Jr., along with others in the town, worked to start a volunteer fire department. Only one school existed in White Bluff in the early- to mid-1900s, William James School. It was for firstgraders to seniors. The post office was at one time where the funeral home is now located and then on the corner of Main and Jackson Streets. Williams James was converted to a middle school in 1972. Today White Bluff is a bedroom community of Nashville and the lifestyle is much faster. HISTORY SOURCE: Heritage Book of Dickson County 1803-2006

The Renaissance Center

Doug Jackson, president of the Jackson Foundation and The Renaissance Center, stands next to busts of his father, Dr. Jimmy Jackson, and his brothers, L.C. and William. Jimmy Jackson founded the Jackson Foundation, which created the center. The Renaissance Center building has been a staple of the Dickson landscape for over 10 years, a hard-to-miss nonprofit facility that meshes fine arts, performing arts, technology, education and film and live music entertainment. It’s a one-ofa-kind attraction for Dickson County – and for many other places as well. Founded by The Jackson Foundation in 1999, The Renaissance Center has seen more than 250,000 visitors a year participate in events from classes and workshops in art, music, theatre, dance and information technology. There are also award-winning television productions, professional and community theatre programs and a planetarium. Thousands of children throughout the region visit each year for educational and entertaining field trips. Hundreds of children take part in Camp Renaissance summer camp, which incorporates traditional outdoor activities with the cultural opportunities of The Renaissance Center. Viewers across Tennessee watch the center’s award-winning outdoors adventure television show, “Tennessee’s Wild Side,” while visitors enjoy the professional dinner theatre productions as well as community and youth theatre productions. Students get personalized assistance in a special tutoring program, high school students learn to fly airplanes and artists from across the country exhibit their

works in the center’s multiple gallery spaces. Corporate meetings, in-service trainings, civic organization meetings, weddings, proms, social dances, recitals and conferences have and can be held in a variety of meeting places within the 110,000-square-foot building located two miles from Interstate 40 at 855 State Route 46 S. in Dickson.

History The Jackson Foundation was created in 1995 when Columbia/HCA purchased the non-profit Goodlark Regional Medical Center. It was named for the three brothers, Drs. Lawrence, William and Jimmy Jackson, who founded the hospital in 1958. After years of planning and visiting museums, science centers, performing arts centers, cultural centers and other institutions nationwide, the foundation members’ dream came true with the opening of The Renaissance Center on Aug. 5, 1999. Founding board chairman Dr. Jimmy Jackson, who passed away in 2001, wanted The Renaissance Center to provide opportunities in the arts while emphasizing the importance of technology.

Industry and Business Crestview Park Crestview Park, which neighbors the Dickson Medical Associates offices, is hard to miss along Highway 46 into Dickson. Attorneys Jody Barrett and Eric Thornton are part of a group of local investors who want to expand the office complex to eventually offer 245,000 square feet of medical and professional space. Adjoining Crestview Park will be the Shoppes of Crestview, planned for over 100,000 square feet of retail space.

Tennsco Founded in 1962, Tennsco is a privately owned manufacturer of office furniture, industrial shelving, shop equipment and metal library shelving. Lester D. Speyer is the founder and chairman of Tennsco. Stuart W. Speyer is president of the corporation. Tennsco gives back to Dickson County in a variety of ways. Tennsco has built a softball park complex with four regulation size fields, a community center, a playground for children, two full-length basketball courts, and two tennis courts. Tennsco provides a four-year scholarship to a

high school senior each year ranging from $10,000 to $12, 250, depending on academic performance. Tennsco also regularly has the largest employee campaign in the county for United Way. Tennsco has six plants. Plant 1, the original plant, is a 268,000 square foot facility located at 402 E. Broad St. in Dickson. Connected plants 2 and 3, which are 654,000 square feet, are on First Street at Pickert Avenue. Plant 4 on Marshall Stuart Drive is a 68,000-square foot facility. Plant 5 at 201 Tennsco Drive, a 335,000 square foot facility, is the main office. Plant 6 on Highway 46 South provides 112,000 square feet of storage space for stocking merchandise.

Eubank Asphalt Paving and Sealing Eubank Asphalt Paving and Sealing, of Charlotte, is regularly visible throughout Dickson County whether it’s the bright red – and always spotlessly clean – company trucks traveling to jobs in the Midstate, or the company’s quickly accomplished work, such as recently repaved Highway 46. Eubank, which employs about 60 people and has been honored by Tennessee Department of Transportation, finished one of the final portions of state Route 840 in October 2010. The $55 million project was 6.5 miles. The company has also done many other paving jobs countywide and helps county and city law enforcement by positioning throughout the county radar speed signs that tell drivers their speeds.

Arts and Local Groups Arts Community Arts Development of Dickson County was created in 2003 to preserve and nurture the area’s artistic identity and nurture it through programs promoting the arts. CAD’s objectives include making the arts visible, providing opportunities to new and experienced artists, acting as a resource for information on the arts for the public and educating people about the effect of the arts on people and communities. The current CAD president is Sommer Pearson. The non-profit group strives to serve as an administrative board with goals to: •Find grants and funding for the arts; •Create programs that connect artists with community needs; •Provide artists with a venue for exposure;

•Provide information for people with questions about the arts; •Promote the arts and their role in the community, and; •Provide scholarships and other educational opportunities for students interested in the arts. Working toward these goals, CAD has also organized themed “celebrity” art auctions, coordinated public art projects, awarded scholarships and presented grants for arts programs at Dickson County elementary schools.

Contact Information For more information on Community Arts Development of Dickson County, call (615) 446-3311.

Art pieces were for sale at various artists’ tents last year at the Firefly Fine Arts Festival at The Renaissance Center grounds in Dickson. The Firefly Festival, which was headed up by the Community Arts Development of Dickson County, will not be held in 2011, but may return in future years.

Community Foundation for Dickson County “Creating a Living Legacy for Dickson County” The Community Foundation for Dickson County, in its11th year of service, continues to provide a way for Dickson countians to make gifts for the improvement and benefit of the community’s future generations – and all gifts are tax-deductible. CFDC is the product of the Leadership of Dickson County Alumni Association and a group of local citizens. Once the idea of an endowment fund took hold, other citizens joined the group and then affiliated with the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. CFMT provides the stability, investment expertise and legal work necessary for the endowment to succeed, according to the group’s members. Dickson County citizens identified three major areas in which to concentrate foundation efforts: educational opportunities for citizens of all ages, leadership and citizenship initiatives, and programs that will improve the quality of life. They included in quality of life such things as the arts, the environment, programs supporting services that meet the needs of the young and the elderly, and preservation of historical places in the county. Each year CFDC make grants to local 501(c)3 agencies and public institutions to provide funds for activities in these areas. The Community Foundation for Dickson County awards the grants in the fall. Last year, eight grants totaling over $24,000 were awarded to agencies and institutions in Dickson County. Since CFDC began making grants in 2002, a total of over $220,000 has been distributed to local groups. The grants from last year will impact the lives of Dickson County children, students, adults and senior citizens. The CFDC endowment is like a savings account for the community – the principal will remain intact, and its earnings will be used to make grants and scholarships in the areas our citizens’ desire. The goal is to build the endowment from the $100,000 it is today to an endowment of many millions. CFDC is governed by a community board with representation from all areas of the county. The major fundraising event for the foundation is the Dickson County Invitational Golf Tournament. There are many ways to participate in CFDC. Donors may make direct donations of cash, property, or stocks or designate CFDC as a beneficiary in wills. Memorials to CFDC honoring a loved one or friend are another way to donate. These create a living legacy that will perpetually honor someone’s memory through the foundation. For more information, contact Dana Ramsey at (615) 446-3302 or any board member.

Information All local 501(c)3 agencies and public institutions are eligible for grants. Applications are available in April/May and must be submitted by July/August (TBD). Awards will be made in November. Grant applications are available online at www.cfmt.org/grants.htm

Habitat for Humanity The Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity–Dickson Division, which started in 1994, has led the construction of 19 homes in Dickson County with three more planned in 2011. The Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity, which merged with the Dickson Habitat affiliate in 2007, is an ecumenical Christian ministry that provides people with the opportunity to purchase and own quality, affordable homes. Nearly 14 percent of Dickson County residents live below poverty, and 47 percent of the county’s renters spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing, according to Habitat statistics. The organization states that those who pay too much for housing have little income left for education, healthcare, childcare and food. The local organization built its first home in 1996 and since 2007 has built seven homes. Of those homes, five are in Maple Valley. PARTNER FAMILIES • Are members of the workforce, as steady income is a requirement for Habitat homeownership. Some Habitat homeowners are retired or receive disability benefits. • Sign a mortgage at zero percent interest, with monthly payments averaging $450-$550, including taxes and insurance. • Must have a housing need, reasonably good credit, a stable income and the willingness to partner with Habitat. They also must earn up to 470 hours of “sweat equity” in HomeWORKS classes and at the build site. • Pay approximately $2,500 for the closing costs on their homes. • Earn an average of $23,000 per year and have two children, typically grade-school age. (Although anyone with a housing need can apply.) • Benefit from the support and shared experiences of fellow homeowners, producing a strong sense of community. BENEFITS OF HOMEOWNERSHIP • Homeowners build wealth as they build home equity, which can be used to fund a child’s education, start a new business or go back to school to improve earning power. • Homeownership helps break the cycle of poverty in families, improving quality of life for future generations. • Compared to the children of renters, children of homeowners are: - 25 percent more likely to graduate high school - 116 percent more likely to graduate college - 20 percent less likely to become teenage parents - More likely to vote and become involved in their communities
