    Like many Texoma towns Vernon is working to bring their historical downtown back to life and business owners in the Vernon community are all on board. As you make your way through Downtown Vernon you can still see building and signs giving you a glimpse into the past. Local business owner, Jamie Chapman, open her store Pepperberries a few years ago and recently relocated in downtown. She is now hoping to make that glimmer of the past shine bright once again.
