A group that tries to improve local economies in the state has brought its annual conference in Richwood, where long-shuttered storefronts have been revived for the first time in decades.
Organizers turned empty Richwood storefronts into an artisan village. Each shop showcases a different entrepreneur or idea.
Former Richwood Mayor Bob Henry Baber says the community grabbed ahold of the conference's vision. He hopes the ideas shared will help the Nicholas County town attract more businesses in the years ahead.
The conference ends Saturday.
