About Us


Discover Downtown Chillicothe is a partnership of business owners, property developers, and interested
community members who have a passion for the city’s center. This partnership was formally known as the Downtown Associates, Inc.

Located within the First Capital District, downtown Chillicothe is alive and well. The first downtown
district in the state of Ohio to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places, downtown
Chillicothe is filled with unique shops, delicious dining spots, and remains the heart of Ohio’s First
Capital City.

It is our mission to promote a vibrant, active, family friendly downtown.

We do this through promotions and events such as the annual open houses, scarecrow contest, and sip n’ stroll events.

This partnership is facilitated as a managed program of the Chillicothe Ross Chamber of Commerce.
