Our program consists of 16 board members and one paid program coordinator.  The purpose of the Better Hometown Program is to stimulate tourism and keep our Historic Downtown vital for both our visitors and local residents.  Some of the things the Better Hometown Program have brought to the community is the
Plains Inn and Antique Mall.  This facility was originally build in 1910 and after much work was refurbished and opened in May 2002.  The Inn occupies the upstairs and offers seven suites, each decorated to represent a different decade beginning with 1920.  The downstairs is an Antique Mall with numerous vendors and many treasures.   In addition to seeing the need for lodging and retail the Better Hometown Program saw the need for a community facility for our local residents.  They began refurbishing an old bat infested warehouse and with dirt floors. The old warehouse soon became the Plains Community Center.  It's location behind the Plains Inn & Antique Mall make it the perfect place for parties, reunions, community functions, business meetings, wedding receptions and occasionally a wedding in the courtyard that fronts the center.  The Centers brick walls, wooden floors and rustic beams make it beautiful for all occasions.

Currently the Better Hometown Program is working to restore an interim home of President and Mrs. Carter, where they lived with their three sons from 1955-1961, also known as the Haunted House.  The house was built before 1853 and has many stories that can be told about it.
