Downtown Campbellsville – South of Main Street 400 ft – Historic District
Did you know this waterway is the south boundary of Downtown Campbellsville? Located 400 ft from Main Street, it passes by Main Street, mayor Tony Young’s office, the Campbellsville Taylor County Rescue Squad, the Historic Motor lodge. and the Ballfields of Campbellsville University. Eventually, it’s joins the waterway from City Lake’s creek near the animal shelter. It’s mostly clear and shallow. The creek banks are lined with stone, rock, masonry, concrete, and a few antique buildings and bridges. Someday, this waterway will be reclaimed and restored to it’s natural state along with green space. This is one of the hidden features seldom seen of Downtown Campbellsville.
Happy Days Ole Time Soda Fountain and Grille opened in December 9, 2009. It’s one of several new restaurants opening downtown. The renovation project took 6 months which included exposing and refinishing a unique beach wood floor. The original soda fountain bar was found, restored, and placed in it’s original spot.
The streetscape renovation on Columbia Street (from Main Street to Broadway) is now complete. It includes new lighting, sidewalk-hardscapes, and landscaping. It’s also part of the larger renovation to Veterans War Memorial near Main Street.
