No one knows downtown like our own General Grant. He’s more than happy to take you and your family for a tour of his favorite places on Main Street – like the DeSoto House and the famous Green Street stairs. He’ll share the stories associated with the many buildings on the National Historic Register and share his experiences when his family owned a leather and saddlery shop more than 150 years ago.
