Ironton needs antique stores to attract visitors

Published 10:29am Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Just a question. Huntington has a street with antique stores. So does Russell, Ky.

Why can’t we, in Ironton, have one down Center Street?

There are numerous empty buildings in town and it would bring business into our little town.

    Have reason to go to Maysville, Ky sometimes. They are doing their best to stay open.
    Usually eat in town and then check out the antique stores while there.
