Mondays in Memphis with The Baker Team
Today, we decided to visit the Best Main Street in America! The Main Street in Collierville, TN was just voted the Best Main Street in America by Parade Magazine! This precious square has so much history! We happened to run into EDCO Title and Escrows very own Dee Dee Mizell who is also on the Main Street Board of Directors . Dee Dee gave us a tour of the square and took us to lunch at The Silver Caboose that still has the original soda fountain ( SO cute)! There is an old stage coach rest stop that was restored and moved to the square that is darling. There is a bed inside that has ropes across the bed frame and Dee Dee explained to us that the saying, “Sleep Tight” came from tightening those ropes! Very neat! There are so many cute shops, restaurants and businesses in this square that it is very easy to spend a day there! They have Sunset on the Square Summer Concert Series and on Fridays, there is live Bluegrass music played in the gazebo! The next big event that they will have is the Downtown Derby Party to help raise money for the ongoing preservation of Main Street. There will be live music, live and silent auctions and tastings from local restaurants. From what I hear, it is a GREAT event! For more information on this event and the absolute awesomeness of the Collierville Main Street, go to http://mainstreetcollierville.org/ . This main street is a must visit!
