  1. Interesting! There was a restaurant bar named Hepplewhite's at one time where I live. It was in an old house in downtown and really cool. They closed unfortunately. I always liked the name and never thought of its meaning so thanks for posting.

  2. Cool! Thanks for posting that, I love making connections! In which city do you live?

  3. Sorry, this is Emily. I didn't realize that I was signed in as my husband on that last comment!
