Downtown Perry consists of about
6 small blocks of local businesses.
As in many small towns, the courthouse
is in the center of town.
This is actually the "old" courthouse...
several years ago, a new, bigger one
was built a few miles away.
Main Street is not the "main street".
That honor belongs to Carroll Street
which runs alongside the courthouse.
It is tree-lined with brick sidewalks,
lamp posts and flowers...
and pretty shops with unique names.
It's been a long time since I've seen a barber poll!
This lovely old home has been converted into
a restaurant..."The Swanson House."
Three years ago, my daughter and I
hosted a bridal luncheon here.
The owner was so kind and accommodating
and the meal was delicious.
It was a lovely setting for a special event.
This inviting little patio would be a great place to
eat take-out or drink a cup of coffee.
After a stroll down Carroll, we were off to
do that "shop-hopping" I mentioned.
More on that next time! :-)
