This was the home, salon and gallery of the late Blan Shephard, who owned and ran Blan's Hair Fashions and Art Gallery for over 50 years. During her career, she competed nationally in styling contests--and won, including one in New York City when she was just 26. Well known also as a local artist, she began painting in her 60s, and opened an art gallery to sell her own paintings as well as represent other artists. The new owners kept the name to pay homage to both Blan's memory and her joie de vivre; the house retains many of her furnishings, lots of her style, and even a few of her and her friends' paintings. The property was purchased in late 2009, and the owners have slowly restored its abundant charms.
