Piece of WR history restored

Another piece of Walnut Ridge history has been brought back to life with the restoration of the historic 1893 building at 110 Northeast Front Street. Jon and Lesa Walter have spent the last four years restoring the property, doing much of the work themselves.

Amanda and Adam Prestidge have occupied the first floor of the property with their business, Simply Stitched Designs, a business that outgrew their home and that offers screen-printing, embroidery, vinyl work and personalization of items, as well as bulk orders.

An open house on Sunday gave the public an opportunity to get acquainted with the business and to view the restored building. If you didn't get to attend the open house, it is worth stopping by to see both the business and the building interior.
