Right in the middle of downtown Humbolt, Tennessee, there's a restored old building that holds the history of one of the state's sweetest little treasures. And, while it may be small, the strawberry has had a huge impact on TN's economy. Ken Wilshire was in west TN recently and found a place that is all about strawberries and much more.
The Strawberry Festival is May 1-7, 2016.
