A city’s downtown should be full of people, entertainment and history. It should tie present with past, and history with renewal. Whether it’s the shops, shop owners, community events, restaurants or local art, everything and everyone has a story to share. Creating and maintaining a flourishing downtown culture ties visitors with place and makes them feel a part of that story.
Downtown Elizabethtown is our city’s heart, its core. As our community and economy grows, downtown has the chance to be the center of what attracts new residents and businesses to the area. A vibrant downtown creates a community that people choose to live in, and this, in turn, will bring new economic opportunities.
Our downtown has many notable and unique offerings. From the Brown-Pusey House to the Historic State Theater, and from Vibe Coffee to Wicked-Eyed Woman and more, we have a variety of destinations that foster camaraderie among visitors and residents alike.
Festivals and attractions such as the BBQ, Blues and Bikes Festival, Second Saturday and the Charles W. Logsdon Historic Costumed Downtown Walking Tour are offered throughout the year, where people come together to celebrate and enjoy good company.
A city’s downtown should work to maintain a sense of pride for residents, and Elizabethtown is something we all can be proud of.
So take a stroll downtown, visit an antique shop, grab a cup of coffee and a pastry, and take the time to enjoy the history and atmosphere we have all worked hard to create.
