  • ‘Olde’ tavern gets new owners

    Ye Olde Trail Tavern changed hands last month. Christine Monroe-Beard, pictured here, and her husband Don Beard, co-owners of Peach’s, have taken over the tavern run by Cathy Christian since 1986. The tavern is closed for renovations and will reopen in mid-March or early April. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)

    The inside of Ye Olde Trail Tavern is a mess. But it’s meant to be that way — temporarily. After being owned by Cathy Christian for 30 years, one of Yellow Springs’ oldest buildings is in new hands, and those hands are hard at work.

The couple took over at the beginning of January, though Macklemore will stay on as manager. (Photo by Matt Minde)

    There isn’t a barber pole outside the new home for the Wildflower Salon, but proprietor Emily Anglemyer and her associate, Meghan Burrowes, hope that their hair salon offers the welcoming, community vibe of a classic barbershop.

  • Rebirth of a garden center

    Master gardeners Steve and Karen Reed are the owners of Stoney Creek Garden Center, located just north of Yellow Springs on Route 68. Deeply aware of the legacy of Stutzman’s Nursery, which occupied the spot for many years, the Reeds are both bringing the Village-owned property back to life and making it their own. Their greenhouses include these hanging pots of fragrant double cascade petunias. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)

    Gardens are lessons in rebirth, and a local garden center is exemplifying this truth in more than the usual ways.
