Highland Rim Historical Society Fundraiser
Notecards of Historic Cold Springs School (Summer and Winter scenes) are available for sale at the Chamber of Commerce.  The cost is $10 for 10 cards.  Funds are used for ongoing preservation and maintenance of this historic building, located in Richland Park.  In addition, HRHS is trying to acquire other items (e.g., school books and blackboards) to restore the school to its original condition as a one-room schoolhouse.



New Area Code Coming!
Middle Tennessee is getting a new area code.  Area code 615 is almost at capacity, and it will be joined by area code 629.  Please get in the habit now of writing your phone number with the area code.  Be sure your area code appears on your business cards, checks, signs, and other items.  In early 2015, it will be mandatory to dial a 10-digit phone number to make a local call.  It is important to note that all cities and towns in Middle Tennessee will have some phone numbers in area code 615 and some phone numbers in area code 629.  Theoretically, you could have a phone number of (615) 234-5678, and your neighbor across the street could have (629) 234-5678.  For more information, please see;
