Church Street

Church Street was always a busy part of the city, but in the mid-1980s, local businessman and architect, Bill Truex, spearheaded its evolution into the Church Street Marketplace. Truex was inspired by a similar project in Copenhagen and led the effort to transform it into the five block, pedestrian-only epicenter of the city. The Marketplace is now home to local shops, restaurants and boutiques which also radiate outward on the side streets.
