Main Street Children’s Museum opened in Old Town just over two years ago. Featuring exhibits inspired by the late Vernon Grant’s whimsical artwork, the museum is a place where families can make memories while engaging their young children in fun, developmental play.
Three weekly ongoing programs at the museum provide additional creative learning opportunities. On the Second Saturday of each month at 9:15am, children can enjoy seasonal stories and crafts. Wednesdays are Wee Wednesdays. On these days, beginning at 10:30am, children ages three and younger, and their caregivers, can enjoy listening to stories, moving to music, and creating crafts. Every Friday, all day, is I Spy Friday. Children ages three to six can explore the museum with their caregivers on a self-guided scavenger hunt. These special activities are included with museum admission, and registration is not required.

The Love Shack, which opened in August, is Old Towns newest local barber shop. While named after owner Jon Love, the name is also reminiscent of the B-52s song The Love Shack, which was released in 1989. Similar to the message of the song, Love wants people to have fun and be happy while having their hair cut. He and manager, Susan Averitt, really enjoy being around people and having the opportunity to personally get to know their customers.
Both Love and Averitt are Master Barbers who have been hairstylists for more than 13 years. After years of working together for another barber shop in Charlotte, they decided to open their own shop here in Rock Hill. They chose their location in Old Town because they wanted to be in a visible spot that was close to both Winthrop University and to a national brand storeEarth Fare, in this case.
