What’s unique about shopping downtown is the atmosphere in a historic district.  You get a sense of the history, and the personal small town touches.

Tangible sights and smells accompany the warmth of each merchant’s carefully curated shop, restaurant or tasting room.

There is also the experience of seeing what is new in downtown.  Several new businesses have opened, or are on the precipice of opening in time for our holiday events Cornish Christmas and the WinterFest daytime family event.
