This month, we are giving a behind the scenes look at 107 W Hargett Street, former Father & Son Antiques and soon to be FastMed Urgent Care's corporate offices. 107 W Hargett Street has recently undergone renovations to preserve the historic character and charm of the building while expanding the space and adding more elements. In this virtual tour, you will learn about the history, design, renovations and creative, thoughtful ways to showcase the building's former use as a storefront. Amy Bullington with Clearscapes Architectural Firm will share updates on the building's progress and answer questions. If interested in attending, please register here. You will receive a Zoom link the day before and day of event.
