WORDS 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 AfterWords started out to be a small cozy coffee counter next to 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 Words AfterWords Entertainment Network to the comfortable look and feel of the cafe', everything about Words AfterWords spells fun. A great place to meet friends or find new ones.
We started with a Bookstore, Words in August of 2006 offering a wide selection of new books in the Hardy Area. The Cafe' AfterWords opened a year later in 2007. In 2011 the book inventory was sold to make way for a Banquet Room, additional Handicapped Restrooms and catering space. Book sales, unfortunately, were not sufficient to warrant a full inventory. Today we maintain a small stock of Religious Self-Help, Children's books, and cookbooks.
Located in the Old Walker House on the National Historic Register at 201 Spring Street, the Words section features a private dining space for 40, fine artwork of local artists and pictures of Hardy of times past. Much of the old Walker House CIRCA 1924 has been preserved including the wood burning fireplace. Pictures of Ms Walker's Piano CICA 1950 Class adorn the walls.
