About Town


In this week’s About Town, the city’s oldest community center — Gaston — is getting a facelift, and a local artist created a high-tech mural Downtown that is helping raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Plus, Downtown’s historic Falls Building sold for $10 million this week.

The hope behind a new mural on the Exchange Building is to teach the community about new types of technology while also raising funds for St. Jude.
