Welcome to Downtown Lamar
Downtown Lamar is at the intersection of two major highways, the Santa Fe Trail and the railroad. It’s near the center of America. But Downtown is at another crossroads too. It used to be a vibrant place, with lots of shops and a Friday market. But to dwell on the past is to blow away in the wind.
Today, Downtown is recovering because of the people. Bearing down, backing each other up. Reaching forward, like the windmills all over town. Small things are adding up – renovated buildings, historic preservation, arts and cultural events.
Downtown is a place where this hard-working community and its visitors can take a break. Buy a gift, have lunch, take in an art show or special event. You’re welcome here. Great Things are Happening in Downtown Lamar.
