Hello and welcome to Downtown Hays. Whether you are a first time visitor or an old friend, I hope you will enjoy seeing and learning more about what’s going on in Historic Downtown Hays.
The Downtown Hays Development Corporation (DHDC) is working continuously with the Executive Director, Executive’s Assistant, Fort Hays State University interns and dedicated working committees consisting of community volunteers and local businessmen and women. The effort has been at times tedious but very exciting and rewarding. As you will see, the newly restored buildings and new and relocated businesses have been a welcome addition to the district and community.
The primary developer and property owner of Downtown Hays is the Liberty Group. The DHDC works with the primary developer and other property owners to continue to foster awareness and promote Downtown Hays as a vibrant center of commerce.
We remain true to our mission: The mission of the Downtown Hays Development Corporation (DHDC) is to foster awareness and promote Downtown Hays as a vibrant center of commerce, recreation, arts, government and history that serves the people of Hays, the surrounding region and visitors from around the world. The DHDC will work to prevent the deterioration and enhance the viability of the community’s cultural centers, historical landmarks and public infrastructure important to the community’s economic and cultural well-being.
We would like to thank the hundreds of contributors who have donated their time and resources to the Downtown Hays project. The revitalization of Historic Downtown Hays would not be possible without them.
