Smyrna's Bolin gives new life where fish fries thrived
SMYRNA - Imogene Bolin doesn't believe in throwing away anything that can be used.
And for the time being, the Smyrna attorney doesn't plan to remove anything from the prominent home she purchased here in March.
Now Bolin, who declined to give her age and would only say she is many years past retirement age, is breathing new life into the house by renovating it into a law office she is calling The Attorneys at Victory House.The office will house up to five attorneys when completed.Attorneys Racquel Peebles and Cherie Meese will join Bolin in the office when it opens as early as this fall.
Spivey commends Bolin for preserving the house and taking an interest in older homes that seems to be lacking in Rutherford County.
Bolin, a former judge for the town of Smyrna and MTSU professor, doesn't really know what motivated her to purchase the home for $255,000 and invest considerably more in restoring it.
"It just seems like this is what is meant to be," she said."I want to see young lawyers come in and be successful, hold office and be a part of the conscience of the community."
Bolin also felt compelled to do what she could to preserve the house after losing two homes in Smyrna she loved to commercial development.Bolin lived in the former Young House on what is now Nissan Drive for around 20 years.When the street and the Nissan Assembly Plant opened, she knew it would just be a matter of time before commercial development would pop up.
"I couldn't afford to live in that house once it went commercial," Bolin said of the zoning.It wasn't feasible to move the large red brick home so she decided to give it away.She placed an advertisement in a local paper April 21, 1993, and gave the house away piece by piece.
If the home still stood, it would be sandwiched between the Krystal's restaurant and the First Tennessee Bank on Nissan Drive.
Bolin then purchased another home on Almaville Road where she lived for a number of years.The widening of the major thoroughfare and the construction of industrial warehouses forced her to sell her property.Bolin, who raises ostriches and is on the board of directors of the American Ostrich Association, was forced to move because her birds couldn't handle the stress of all the construction.
The Almaville Plaza retail center is being developed where her home once stood.
Bolin is giving away all of the fixtures and lumber that can't be used in the remodel of the Victory House.Instead of just tossing cabinets, showers, timber, paneling and other fixtures from the house into the trash, she has given it away to anyone who can use it.
The exterior of the house will go virtually unchanged.Bedrooms and sitting rooms inside the home will be converted to conference rooms and offices, and the existing staircase to the second floor is being replaced.
"I feel like it is worthwhile," Bolin said of the venture she's embarking on in her senior years."You have to put your energy somewhere."
"I have no intention or desire to retire and do nothing," she added.
