There's a fellow and his wife over in west TN who live about as far away from city life as you can get. So instead of travelling to and from town all the time, Herbert Adams and his wife Marie brought the town to their own back yard. As Ken Wilshire discovered, it's a fun place where visitors can step back in time and realize that if you build it, people really will come.
Ken Wilshire joined the Tennessee Crossroads in 2008 with a desire to tell stories about people who have found their passions in life and who would otherwise go unrecognized for their contributions to their community. Ken began his career at WREG-TV in Memphis, writing, producing and editing news stories, features and documentaries. After leaving Channel 3 he joined Fed Ex in their communications department as a writer/producer and was promoted to the department manager. Ken spent almost 25 years in operations management at FedEx and other Fortune 500 companies.
