Bryan Hacker is not only a local business owner, he is also a philanthropist dedicated to doing all he can to preserve the history of Summerton and to recovering as much of its former charm as possible by saving, refurbishing and renovating many of the downtown buildings. Sales of his art work will go to the non-profit foundation he has established to help spruce up downtown Summerton. In addition to painting downtown buildings, he has built planters for flowers and shrubs, and is now working on a grant to help the downtown area do further renovations. In addition, he is restoring a building at 210 Main Street which will house a museum dedicated to showcasing historic Summerton.
Bryan says, "We are working hard so the future generations will be able to enjoy this beautiful area their parents and grandparents built and enjoyed." He believes that with the help of donors and the community at large, he can help the town better thrive and attract new, local businesses interested in relocating to a revitalized downtown Summerton.
