Downtown Development

Historic Downtown Wilson is the place to be with great locally owned restaurants, shops and businesses; the Downtown Alive concerts series, Whirligig Festival and other fun events; live entertainment, arts and culture, museums and more.

It's also a wonderful place to locate a business and tap into the growing energy and excitement.
