by Debbie Hall, Martinsville Bulletin Staff Writer
The Henry County-Martinsville area, bypassed by The Crooked Road musical heritage trail, is looking to build on its furniture heritage instead.
Plans will be unveiled this week for a new furniture heritage initiative, according to Mark Heath, president and CEO of the Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corp. (EDC).
The initiative will build on this area’s furniture heritage, he said, declining to give details of the plans. (link)
I guess it is supposed to attract tourists from up north. I guess it will include a tour of Martinsville's abandoned furniture factories. I guess these guys need to think this through.
