Civilization... and Family Fun

Just because River Bend is in Perry County, the least-densely populated county in Tennessee...

... and notwithstanding the high unemployment here:

There's more to River Bend than just solitude and watching the dragonflies shuttle around the [Buffalo River] water's surface.

For the third year now, every other Saturday night sees 'Music on Main Street' (on the opposite Saturdays, it's held up in Lobelville, Perry County's other big city).  You probably didn't get to be there last night.  Here's a shot of the stage in front of the County Courthouse.

Lots of people have worked very hard over the last couple of years to create the really attractive street scene you see here.  Notice the street lighting, trees and a very pleasant scene.

The County Courthouse is the center of the city square, so common in rural counties.  The transformation  of Linden's downtown has been a great thing.

The courthouse was built in 1928, having replaced an earlier courthouse that was destroyed by fire, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.

But it is still great to be at the River, just 15 minutes outside of the county's seat.
