Meet Jim and Mallorie Rasberry and Josh Nowell, founders of Downtown Comeback, story inspired by their own hometown of Laurel, Mississippi's historic Comeback. In 2015, once in a lifetime opportunity launched for the city of Laurel: Home Town, TV show on HGTV that highlights the city's rebirth and revitalization of historic homes through the work of show hosts, Erin and Ben Napier. But it was the community revitalization project that began eight years earlier that tell story of three couples working to help transform the town's historic Downtown and residential district. The movement to save the city that viewers get to see in each episode of Home Town is 100 % authentic to what was happening in Laurel before the show was ever reality. And that's what makes the story of Laurel and Home Town even more special. Rasberrys, Nowells, and Napiers are more than just best friends, family, cast members of HGTV's Home Town and business partners. They all share a passion for historic preservation and small town revitalization. That passion was instill in them from an early age, but didnt come to reality until they all moved back to Laurel after college and begin journey of bringing pride back to Downtown. In 2006, I opened doors to my investment business in Downtown Laurel. It wasnt anything like the stories my dad had told me from when he was growing up. The Downtown I had moved into was dead. Businesses had closed and buildings had been forget. I know we had to do something, recall Jim Rasberry. It all really started off for them shortly after college when each couple purchased a building in Downtown Laurel. Being newly married entrepreneurs, they were looking for the most affordable option in terms of housing and office space, while also still investing in the city. Now, when they think back on it, they all get a pretty good laugh-how crazy it is that they could buy an entire building for the same price or less than a starter home! They renovate each of their lofts apartments and business offices and they become some of the first people living and working in Downtown. In fact, at that time, there were only about five occupied lofts in Downtown-fast forward to today, there are around 35 lofts with waiting lists. Living Downtown also makes them even more inspired to invest in their small town and bring Laurel back to her former glory-so that is exactly what they do, but it wasnt just them. There were a core group of Downtown hopefuls that knew something needed to change if their hometown of Laurel, MS would ever be as successful as we were all hoping for. Laurel Main Street was created in 2007 and became blueprint that everyone could rally behind to make a difference. For us, fact that we chose to live in Laurel meant that we didn't have a choice when it come to improving our city.
