Building Futures Preserving History
History, diversity and activity merge in Painesville’s charming downtown, where we’re preserving our rich past and building a vibrant future. We’re the civic heart of Lake County – and a gathering place for people from all walks of life who come to experience the flavor of a true Main Street on the rise. Nestled on the Grand River up the road from Lake Erie and 30 miles from Cleveland, we’re a crossroads of recreation, commerce, community and opportunity.
People come to Downtown Painesville to gather, play, connect with history, build a future and love life. Join us. We have an engaging story to tell.
