Located in the heart of Oil City along Oil Creek and the Allegheny River you'll find our downtown business district. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the business district is filled with majestic architecture from days past, and beautiful scenic views of the adjacent waterways. Businesses range from restaurants and bars, small boutiques, art galleries, creative studios, and recreation centers to professional services, just to name a few.
Designated as a Keystone Main Street and nationally accredited by Main Street America, the Business District benefits greatly from Oil City's Main Street Program. As a community-driven initiative, the Main Street Program promotes the revitalization of the Business District.
With a plethora of resources, incentives and the wealth of knowledge and eagerness of the Main Street Program to assist local businesses, the Business District is a land of opportunity for prospective new businesses or even well established ones looking for a vibrant new community to serve.
