Newcomers to Morgan County may not know much about Commercial Street, or Front Street as it used to be called, but before the freeways came to town it was the place to be. Townsfolk say it used to be tough to find a parking spot some weekends.
Some remember it so fondly, they can’t wait to see this street revitalized and booming with life once more. Resident and owner of “Glassed Up,” Lisa Gilgen, said, “As I opened my shop in April of this year, I kept thinking about how much I would love to see Commercial Street become a thriving street again.” Because of this, she decided to step up and do something about it.
Gilgen approached other business owners on the street and together, they came up with a plan. “Quite a few people aren’t even aware that there are new shops open on Commercial Street. I know if all of the businesses work together to promote a new vitality, we will all benefit,” praised Gilgen.
