Five years ago, Viviana and Carlos Ramirez opened a boutique on East Morris Street in Dalton.

Then, many of the buildings around them were empty - and over time, they started to buy and renovate them.

Today, Carlos and Viviana own or co-own several businesses on East Morris Street between Green Street and Glenwood Avenue - what they call “Block 79” - including the boutique, a furniture store, a gym and a coffee shop.

Carlos - who was born in Mexico - came to Dalton as a child.

Viviana moved to Dalton from California about a dozen years ago.
