Yesterday, the City of Summerville was awarded a grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission for extending a walking trail from the Summerville Depot South along the creek. The trail will include a boardwalk and bridge connecting the trail and Dowdy Park to Economy Street between the old Goodie Barn and the Hair Salon.
