|Downtown signposts go up|
Winnsboro's downtown merchants and businesses will be more visible now that two signposts are being installed at the corner of Prairie and Front streets and at the corner of Adams and Front street. The iron signposts were designed and made by local metal craftsman Mark Massey.
According to Winnsboro Main Street director Kay LaFrance-Knight, individual signs will hang from the signposts to let drivers know what businesses are located downtown.
"This is an effort to bring visibility to downtown," LaFrance-Knight said.
She said traffic counts indicate some 10,000 vehicles travel Front Street each day, and the signs will provide additional exposure to travelers.
Individual signs are $125 for the first year and $100 per year after that. Each sign will be two-sided with uniform lettering. No logos will be used.
"Each sign will look alike and will hang from the post," LaFrance-Knight said. "It's really a small price to pay for this wonderful advertising."
There is a limit on how many signs can hang from each signpost and orders must be placed by Friday, April 4. Those interested are asked to contact the Winnsboro Main Street office at 435-3781 or chamber of commerce at 435-4488 to order.
