City with a Tree

Known for the Tower Tree which has graced the courthouse since the early 1870s, visitors now come for shopping, dining, and many other events. The historic downtown area is re-inventing itself, and has so much more to offer than just the Tower Tree.

Over the last two years, Streetscape has redeveloped Broadway Street, which has led to major growth downtown. Mayor Gary L Herbert credits the rebirth to a “strong partnership between city and county government, business leaders merchants and nonprofit boards working together to promote and develop downtown.”

   Since, 2013, four new consignment shops have opened: Picker’s Paradise, It’s Your Dime, The Olde Pickett Fence and Magnolia’s Mercantile. Each shopping destination has something unique to offer everyone; It’s Your Dime is a consignment shop that is also home to Christian’s Kinder Laden toy store, the Huntington Carriage House home décor store, the Funky Monkey Café, and He Is The Potter, a paint-your-own-pottery shop located on the second floor. Magnolia’s Mercantile specializes in a combination of primitives,  collectibles, and shabby chic décor; while it’s relatively new (opened in January 2015) it has become a staple in downtown Greensburg.    Picker’s Paradise, which opened in 2013 now boasts 80+ booths of collectibles and treasures. The Olde Pickett Fence is located on East Main St. and specializes in primitives and collectibles. Another unique shopping destination is just off the square on N. Broadway is Denim and Honey which offers youthful style in clothing with a honey bar!

   Bonnie Holaday, owner of Magnolia’s, says “I love being part of a downtown community that works together to bring visitors to the square while supporting each others businesses.”

  Want an amazing dining experience, downtown Greensburg has a lot to offer! Did you know that Greensburg boasts the only Indonesian Grill in the state of Indiana? Mayasari’s Grill, located on N. Broadway right next to Denim and Honey, is a culinary delight serving both traditional Indonesian dishes and American cuisine with an Indonesian twist. The restaurant won two categories in the 2014 Tenderloin Throwdown: Most Creative and People’s Choice. Maya’s gluten-free tenderloin has become a staple on the menu. Mayasari’s also makes their own sauces.

    BBQ? Try Carriage House on the Square. It is also on North Broadway and serves up some of the best BBQ around. If you are visiting a local event, you might see the Carriage House food truck at an event. Nothing beats ribs and drinks outside on Broadway in the summertime!

    The newest on the square is The Beach. The Beach serves both seafood and good old American cuisine. They also offer outdoor dining in the season. From the newest to the oldest, Storie’s Restaurant has been a downtown staple since the 1970s. Known for their tenderloins and pies made from scratch daily. They serve up breakfast, lunch and dinner every day but Sunday!
