Welcome to Downtown Ellensburg – home of the Ellensburg Downtown Association.

We invite you to enjoy our authentic culture located in Central Washington.

Between 2000 and 2011, the National Trust for Historic Preservation created a list of a Dozen Distinctive Destinations. The National Trust advocates for historic districts all over the country and helps preserve small-town history on a national level. In 2007, downtown Ellensburg made the list of distinctive destinations because of the beautiful architecture, unique landscape and rich, grassroots history. Thanks to the involvement of the community and the unique charm of the town, Ellensburg has become a destination spot in Washington state.

The Ellensburg Downtown Association is a non-profit downtown revitalization program whose mission is to enhance the economic and cultural vitality of historic downtown Ellensburg using the National Trust Main Street Center’s four-point Main Street approach.
