Downtown Steubenville boasts a rich and historic past, with dozens of buildings originating in the 1800's and the early 1900's. The preservation and revitalization of these historic buildings and the downtown area is crucial to the future growth and economic development of our community. The Steubenville Revitalization Group formed in January of 2007 to help make this need transformation become a reality.
The SRG in 2008 took the first step in this movement by bringing Valley Ventures on board to help develop a 3 year master plan, and to assist in its implementation. The plan has been developed to bring a variety of unique retail shops, businesses, entertainment venues, and urban loft residences back into downtown. The revitalization plan, along with a beautification program and a great group of existing downtown merchants will help turn downtown back in to the bustling urban core it once was.
