Monday, September 23, 2019 was a historic day for Hickory’s Downtown! Two different ceremonies were held. The first was for the City Walk Groundbreaking and was followed by the Ribbon Cutting for the Union Square Construction.

These celebrations offered members of the community an opportunity to come together with City Council Members, Bond Committee Members, City Employees and Downtown Business Owners to honor the hard work and commitment we all have to helping our great city grow!
