Watch: House Speaker Mac McCutcheon, Minority Leader Anthony Daniels featured in Our Yellowhammer 360 video series – Yellowhammer News

Wetumpka is ready for its close-up. Almost a year after it was announced that the city beat out 2,600 other small towns to be the focus of HGTV’s “Home Town Takeover,” the show will air its first of six episodes May 2.

“Home Town Takeover” follows Ben and Erin Napier, stars of the hit home-renovation show “Home Town,” as they give Wetumpka’s downtown and historic district a facelift, with a focus on how renovation and preservation can revitalize a small town.

The Napiers’ passion for small towns has been playing out on “Home Town” since that show began in 2016 and is built on their belief in the big worth of American’s smaller places.
