WORDS and AFTERWORDS your place for a fun social get together in Historic Hardy Town smack in the heart of Spring River Country. Our goal is to provide a comfortable place to browse for a book, eat, and listen to great music while meeting with friends or finding new ones.
WORDS opened in August of 2006 offering a wide selection of new books in the Hardy Area. Located in the Old Walker House on the National Historic Register at 201 Spring Street, it houses not only works of fiction, non-fiction, but also fine artwork of local artists, local music, cards, postcards, and pictures of Hardy of times past. Much of the old Walker House CIRCA 1924 has been preserved including the wood burning fireplace and kitchen sink. Pictures of Ms Walker's Piano Class adorn the walls.
AFTERWORDS started out to be a small cozy coffee counter in a unique book store but quickly developed into one of the Spring River Area's fresh and exciting places to meet and eat. From the specially selected local music on the AfterWords Entertainment Network to the comfortable look and feel of the cafe', everything about AfterWords spells fun. A great place to meet friends or find new ones. AfterWords adjoins Words through a common hallway. Books and food items may be shared between the shops.
