When Jane Bell left her hometown of Highpoint, North Carolina, she thought she would never live in a small town again after experiencing the big city life in Charleston and Charlotte. But fourteen years ago, Jane and her husband Alex decided to give up the big city and return to Alex’s hometown of Rutherfordton, North Carolina.
So they packed up and moved into Alex’s great grandfather’s house, an old family homestead that was built in 1888 and is in Rutherfordton’s downtown historical area. Today, Jane finds small town life comforting and says “Rutherfordton is a very warm, friendly town.”
