Ben Napier, host of HGTV's Home Town

Ben and Erin Napier, stars of HGTV’s Home Town, live and restore homes in a small town in Mississippi. Erin, an artist who started her career in corporate graphic design, and Ben, a woodworker with a degree in history, embrace a passion for renovating historic homes. During the series, the home-buying families benefit from Erin’s imaginative hand sketches and Ben’s custom handiwork showcasing local reclaimed materials.  

The couple, who as newlyweds bought and restored a 1925 Craftsman-style cottage, are involved in a local organization that strives to improve and grow the historic downtown district in which they reside. Ben has served as president of the group, and Erin uses her graphic design skills to create nostalgic branding and marketing to inspire the city’s rebirth.  

When they aren’t renovating homes for new residents, the couple keeps themselves busy with their four best friends operating a shop that sells heirloom wares and durable goods made in the U.S.A.
