About Barton

_mg_6087-editI am William Barton Close and I started my life on Signal Mountain located in Tennessee. I was raised in the house that my great grandfather, Walter L. Marr, moved into in 1915. I am the son of Bill and Sarah Close and have a brother, Paul, and two sisters, Sally and Beth.

My immediate family includes my wife of 37 years, Cindy, and our children, Xander and Walter.

My hobby, which I inherited from my father, is collecting old Buicks, their memorabilia, and history.
