Did You Know ?...There are a few new restaurants and businesses coming to Blythewood soon!  Plus, we have so many new residents moving in weekly who I get to meet at Town Hall when they bring in their water application.  They all seem very pleased with their new homes and the Town of Blythewood.
     On the Blythewood Timeline (Historical Society website info)  I learned that in 1883 Blythewood had 2 stores, Ridgeway had 10 and Winnsboro had 49. We've come a long way!
