      The railroad line from Greensboro to
   Winston-Salem was completed in 1873. The
   town needed a train station, and an effort
   to fund a station was headed by the Young
   Men’s Business Association. The new pas-
   senger station was built on a pie-sliced
   piece of land surrounded by businesses on
   Chestnut Street, between Third and Fourth
   streets. The new station opened May 9, 1904,
   and was designed by Frank Milburn. Milburn
   also designed the second Forsyth County
   Courthouse. The Chestnut Street station
   served the city until a new station was built in

                                                 promoter, booking this series came naturally.
                                                     “I’ve got a laundry list of bands,” he said. “I just

                                                 country to rock to reggae.
                                                     The series kicks off May 21 with Andy and

                                                 Downtown Band. Stephens says Andy and Marty
                                                 play solid-gold hits from the ’60s and ’70s, with a

                                                     Matt Stillwell (June 18) is a country performer
                                                 from Sylva. Stephens compares Stillwell to Kenny

    Grateful Dead concert isn’t easy. But that’s exactly what the Pranksters will try
    to do July 2. The band, which has a history of playing in the area, plays music
    from virtually every period of the Dead’s career. According to the band’s Web
    site (, they cover “fan favorites from 19 classic albums” spanning
    1967 through 1987. They might also throw in an Allman Brothers or Pink Floyd
    cover as well.
        The rest of the summer’s lineup promises bands and performers just as
    diverse as those mentioned above. Stephens says being outdoors is a perfect
    summer experience for audience and artist. The venue is great and, with no
    admission charge, the price is right.

        “Corpening Plaza is a very inviting, family-friendly environment. It’s a great
    venue and the sound’s always good. Bring out a blanket. It’s just a really nice
    spot,” he said.
