Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful – Beautify Main Street Uniontown
Join us downtown for the 2013 Flower Planting and Spring Cleanup on Saturday, May 11th from 9-Noon (meeting at Storey Square)! There are urns lining Main Street which will be filled with greenery and bright colored blossoming plants.
Uniontown’s flowers are paid for with contributions from downtown businesses through a fundraiser held by 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.
Last spring raspberry wave petunias with apricot and yellow million bells complimented by silver falls dichondra and a spike plant gave the Main Street a sudden burst of color.
Thanks to volunteers from Target, United Bank, Pepperberries, and First Federal Savings & Loan the planters were finished by mid-morning just in time for the Wagon Train passing through.
We wish to compliment the Uniontown Fire Department and downtown businesses who did such a fantastic job caretaking these urns over the past summer!
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.
