Situated on the central park square in Frankston is Atwood Hat Company, a leader in the western hat industry.
Founder and Frankstonite Dick Atwood discovered these exceptional hats a trip to Mexico in 1987 when he purchased a palm leaf hat. After seeing how well the hat lasted in the hay fields and branding pens, Dick retired from the family business, made another trip to Mexico, and returned with his store inventory.
Atwood Hat has grown into a 12,000 square-foot warehouse and office complex located on the family’s Frankston ranch, stocking the local downtown storefront as well as a volume of retail venues across the United States.
Family owned and operated since February 2012, Phillips Plants provides fresh-cut flower arrangements, flowerbed design services and plant materials.
The garden center offers a variety of annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, fruit trees, shrubs, trees, hanging baskets, combination pots, soil, mulch, and garden decor. In the fall, mums are a specialty. For the winter season, designer poinsettias are available in different sizes along with the traditional red and white color choices.
