Adopt a Rest Stop
Envision Williamston (EW) is unveiling a project to help beautify the Downtown Historic Corridor of the Town of Williamston. The first of 12 sites planned as part of the “Adopt a Rest Stop” program was created with private funds provided by Ace Hardware and the generous donation of time and talent from Ragsdale’s Decks. The new pergola and bench seating is located on East Main Street at Town Square Center parking lot (next to McDonalds).

Ragsdale joined site sponsor Ace Hardware to design and build the pergola for the centerpiece project as part of the Envision Williamston downtown beautification “Adopt a Rest Stop” program.
“The Adopt a Rest Stop project will complement the Town’s proposed electronic message board and street banners, creating a vibrant and fresh look to the downtown,” according to EW Executive Director Sonya Crandall. “It will encourage greater visitor/pedestrian foot traffic, serve as a catalyst to generate spillover effects from community events held in Mineral Spring Park and help create an inviting environment for new business development.”
