Our historic preservation efforts sustain the charm and character of our unique Uptown. Our activities and events build and promote a vibrant community for residents and visitors to enjoy. ​

When small businesses thrive, when residents have pride for their home, when people visit from other towns, and when our community is connected, the future of our favorite place is bright.
