"And any time you come to Adairville this park is the first thing you see. It's not like other towns that have to drive a ways to get to it."
Billy Smith has lived in Adairville for 40 years. As vice president of the Chamber of Commerce there, he's glad they are working to improve the city.
"The Chamber's goal is to get the park looking better so it will attract businesses or people looking to move here from bigger cities or whatever."
The first step they are taking is tearing down an old storage building on the square. The building was built in the mid-70's. Before that there were drinking fountains on either side, in the days when public places were segregated.
"The old one was the segregated one. It had water fountains for both sides."
Once the building is torn down, it will be replaced by this fountain. That's just one of the improvements Smith says the city of Adairville is making.
"We've got new lights up already and some flowers around."
Smith says many people are attracted to the laid back atmosphere in Adairville. And the Chamber of Commerce for the city is hoping the facelift the square is getting will attract even more.
