As the new president, I felt a society about history should start with itself so that future members and officers can know what was involved in organizing this group and to see the tremendous accomplishments this group has achieved in a relatively short span of time. Not many, if any towns the size of Cave Spring can brag about rehabilitating four buildings of such quality and significance as the Baptist Church in the Park, the Hearn Academy, the Hearn Inn  and the Presbyterian Church. Once you see where they started and what they proudly open to the public now will astound you. It makes me proud to be a part of Cave Spring and this organization.
