ELLSWORTH, Maine (WABI) - Multiple new businesses are opening in downtown Ellsworth this summer. Now, there’s a downtown map to help visitors locate them all.

Heart of Ellsworth is a non-profit organization focused on revitalization of the downtown area.

They met regularly with business owners during the pandemic in their “Zoom at Noon” series to get feedback on what the map should look like.

”They helped us in the design process through our meetings with them as to what the legend should look like,” said Phyliss Young, Heart of Ellsworth’s Board President. “They wanted a lot of vibrant color, they wanted it to be seen from a distance. So we worked to have this created in that manner.”

The map also features historic places in downtown Ellsworth.

A PDF version of the map will be distributed to eateries and shops for online use and to give to their customers.
