I’m from the north east and had my first trip to the CB and couldn’t have been happier. The breakfast options all sounded so good that I wanted everything. I loved it so much I even bought a tee shirt! I will go back every time I’m in Leipers Fork.‎

Country Boy Restaurant in Leipers Fork, TN has had a beautiful facelift, new ownership. The environment is fresh and fun. The colors of the restaurant are now Chocolate Brown and Red with fresh flowers on each table and friendly wait staff. The food is also delicious. During my last visit I ordered the soup of the day, Tomato Basil Soup, and it was the best I’ve ever had! I highly recommend Country Boy!‎

Heritage Foundation honors Historic Courthouse restoration with top Preservation Award

By wherald

Restoration of the historic Williamson County Courthouse on the Public Square is the recipient of top honors of the 20 renovations and new construction projects of the past year recognized by The Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County in its annual preservation awards.

The Courthouse and 19 other projects were honored, and new board members were elected, at the 43rd annual meeting of The Heritage Foundation Thursday, May 20, at the Factory at Franklin.

“We recognized 20 projects completed over the past year that complement the historic character of Franklin and Williamson County,” said Heritage Foundation President David Garrett. “The list of winners includes everything from new bank construction to country feed mills and diners. Several public works projects were recognized, culminating with the top award for restoration and remodeling of the historic Williamson County Courthouse, which ensures that this pre-Civil War landmark will be preserved for future generations.”

Judges noted that the courthouse project is an outstanding example of the benefits of maintaining the downtown’s architectural and civil anchors. As one of only six remaining antebellum courthouses from Tennessee’s 95 counties, this iconic building is crucial to retaining historic downtown Franklin’s economic viability and vitality. Because of its history and prominence, Williamson County has taken careful measures to restore and protect this building. In addition to sensitive exterior renovations to the foundation, walls, and overall structure, the restoration included preserving the terrazzo flooring, refurbishing the historic courtroom’s benches and jury box, repairing millwork and crown molding, and preserving the wrought-iron fence and landscaping.

In other awards, President David Garrett presented the President’s Volunteer Award for outstanding service to Denny Kohan and Bob Rudman.
