Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful – Beautify Main Street Uniontown
2014 Flower Planting and Spring Clean Up Wednesday, May 28th from 9-Noon Storey Square – Volunteers Welcome!
Downtown businesses – meet us in front of your flower pot (bring a hand spade, gloves, and a jug of water) to plant your urn. Provided we have enough volunteers, we would also like to clean up some of the parking lots in downtown.
Uniontown’s flowers are paid for with contributions through the Green Gardeners. The Green Gardeners plant the urns and troughs located on the side streets off Main Street; the Marshall Monument at five corners; and Marshall Courtyard.
The flowers are grown and delivered by Bill David of David’s Greenhouse.
This year several varieties of coleus, grasses, and calendula will decorate the urns along the main corridors of the downtown area.
Main Street is a volunteer driven organization. If you would like to take part in the beautification, historic preservation, or economic development activities, please visit, call, or email.

The Main Street Program is organizing a National Road Festival in Uniontown on the same day the wagon train passes through Uniontown. This year we are hoping to engage the community by having a walking map of the downtown with church and building tours, artisans, quilt and antique appraisals, historical reenacting/narratives, antique cars, plants and produce for sale, an old-time acoustic music jam on the stage at Storey Square, and shopping at locally owned businesses.
