DOES A TV SHOW MAKE THE
TOWN OR DOES THE TOWN MAKE THE TV SHOW?

This is a story of a hometown, downtown, small town USA comeback. A behind the scenes view of the community restoration that led to the historic home restoration you see on TV. Let us help develop your town's comeback story. 

Because we believe it takes a town to save a town.

LEADING FROM EXPERIENCE

Mallorie & Jim Rasberry and Josh Nowell will tell you how their hometown of Laurel, Mississippi, created an atmosphere to instill preservation, promotion, and economic development efforts community wide.

The trio may be featured on HGTV's show Home Town, just renewed for a 4th season, for their work with residential remodeling with show hosts, Erin & Ben Napier, but Josh, Jim & Mallorie got their start in downtown revitalization. The Napiers, Nowells, and Rasberrys are more than just best friends and family, they are business partners, real estate developers, USA Made advocates and are still very involved with economic development and volunteerism in their city. 

Together this team has collectively restored over 60,000 sq.ft of commercial space, over 40 historic homes, recruited and retained over 25 businesses, operate 3 retail stores, secured and manage a national furniture line and operate a bed and breakfast - all while having their individual small businesses and raising families.  It’s that dynamic that has given them the ability to tell their story of small town revitalization and help other communities have a comeback story of their own.

Our experience with Jim, Mallorie, and Josh of Downtown Comeback was wonderful! They took time with us to tour our town, specifically our downtown district. They offered feedback and a fresh perspective on what we see everyday and might take for granted. All three of them were a great source of knowledge in business, development, and experience from their own roles in Laurel’s revitalization.
