Home Town's Most Heartwarming Moments

Ben and Erin Napier have dead-on instincts and just the right sets of skills when it comes to recognizing potential in classic old homes, but their best talent is turning that potential into reality. And their intentions go well beyond fixing up and remodeling these houses: Since the first season of Home Town, they've maintained a passion for revitalizing the small town they live in and love, Laurel, Mississippi. And this passion has spanned seven seasons of their hit series and a variety of spinoff series and specials including Home Town Takeover, Home Town Kickstart, Ben's Workshop and Home Town Takeover: Where Are They Now. This impromptu portrait is from Season 7. Now ... let's step back to the beginning.

A Coke and a Smile

Ben and Erin share a moment in historic downtown Laurel during Home Town's first season. "No one loves a place more than we love our town," Ben says in the opening of the show's pilot. "We're trying to help it. We're trying to bring it back." Finishing the thought, Erin chimes in: "And the only way we know how to contribute to bringing it back to its heyday is to make it a friendly and welcoming place to new people who are coming here. It's going through a major rebirth, and it's so exciting to be a part of it."
