A Brief History

Embracing & Enhancing Downtown Lewisburg

In 1980, The Lewisburg Foundation was formed to determine the future of Lewisburg's downtown area.  With the expansions of I-64 the once bustling downtown of pharmacies, grocers, hardware stores and more would inevitably change as retail developed adjacent to the Interstate.  We collaborated with municipal government and the merchants association to identify and implement a strategy to keep downtown vibrant.

40 years later we operate as a beautification organization focused on creating and maintaining a stunning environment that protects and enhances the unique qualities of our historic town.  The Lewisburg Foundation is dedicated to supporting regional tourism by preservation of downtown gardens and entrances to the historic district.  Visitors to Lewisburg will find a beautiful and charming downtown, enhanced by it's unique history and artistic community life.

Today, we maintain gardens in downtown Lewisburg and parks in the north, south, east and west gateways to the historic district.  The Foundation operates on a modest annual budget which includes mowing, fertilization, watering, pruning, replacing, mulching, weeding and planting of trees, shrubs, turf and perennials, as well as beds of annual flowers each spring and fall.  We are a nonprofit organization funded by gifts from members, friends of Lewisburg and private foundations.  Capital Projects, which vary from year to year, are funded by special gifts or grants.  Gifts can be made to the Foundation for individual naming opportunities and honorary gifts, such as the planting of trees or flowers and the placement of benches.

We invite you to be part of our effort!
