THE PLATTSMOUTH VISION
Plattsmouth, "The Jewel Of The Platte", is on the move.
The Plattsmouth Main Street program, city government, building and business owners work together to preserve and maintain our historic downtown, our infrastructure, and historic buildings. In July 2010 we begin revitalizing a five block corridor as a Victorian streetscape with new sidewalks, decorative lighting, trees, planters, and benches.
Plattsmouth, one of the oldest communities in Nebraska, is a cultural center, whose downtown is designated as a Historic District with 42 registered historic buildings. Fine dining, antiques, entertainment, art, and specialty retail stores attract visitors who want to walk into history. Interpretive signage tells the rich history of the community. Downtown provides the kind of place where people can spend a day, weekend, or a week.
Quality restaurants, bed and breakfasts, meeting places, and adjacent parks attract visitors from nearby population centers who are looking for a quiet and attractive location to share with friends. Downtown residents, many of whom live in upper floor spaces, mingle with visitors to create a vibrant and proud culturally diverse atmosphere.
Our Missouri riverfront beckons visitors for recreation, events, and a glimpse of the world as seen by 1804 explorers Lewis and Clark. Diverse downtown businesses flourish and meet the needs of local residents. Tourists are attracted by the safe, convenient and comfortable places to hang out. Baby boomers, retirees, families, and people looking for a grand experience feel at home in Plattsmouth.
