From numerous one-of-a-kind art galleries to an extensive collection of public art from many regional artists, Downtown Kennewick is fun place to be. The architecture in downtown reflects the origins of Kennewick from the early 1900s up to contemporary times. Downtown Kennewick, a family-friendly locale, is home to more third-generation family businesses than anywhere for miles around, many remaining in their same location over the years, dispensing friendly customer service that people have come to expect. While some of Downtown’s historic buildings still maintain their original uses from the hardware store to the fam store to eating and drinking establishments to the local mortuary, other buildings have been adapted for today’s visitors from the old theatre (now an antiques store), to a grain store (now a brewpub) to two old JC Penney stores. Historic Downtown Kennewick brings the past and the present together for a unique shopping, dining, and recreational experience.
