Heath Seymour is no stranger to downtown Elizabethtown.
During the ’70s and ’80s, his father owned and operated Seymour Shoes, a downtown shop.
“I kind of grew up running around downtown,” Seymour, 41, said. “That definitely caused an attachment to downtown.”
These days, Seymour still runs around downtown.
As the executive director of Elizabethtown-Hardin County Heritage Council, he often visits the downtown shops and keeps tabs on vacant city-owned properties he hopes to help fill in the coming years.
