Downtown Hartville is home to small, historic shops and host to time-honored events. Many of the vacant buildings that have been lying in wait are now ready to be revived. We have a surge of new business, new community involvement and we are working hard to revitalize citizens hearts and minds to move Hartville into this new era of prosperity. The Wright County Courthouse sits at the heart of Hartville as we are the county seat. Traffic comes through town on both the 5 and 38. We are perfectly situated for through-business and history tourists, especially Civil War enthusiasts. We also are a main thoroughfare for cyclists crossing the country. Hartville's visibility is high and we would love to bring more positive attention to our beautiful little part of the country. Winnings would be well invested in events that would bring more people and profits into the City thereby giving us a way to earn continuous revenue to use on larger improvements like our sidewalks, walking paths, code enforcement for blight and maintenance for our lake and park.
