"And into the woods I go to lose my mind and find my soul" - John Muir
Downtown is the heart of Thompson Falls. It is an active place, a vibrant place, a place with attractive and unique small town character. It is welcoming and friendly, quaint and safe. Downtown is an employment center, where historic buildings and new development blend together to house local stores, local restaurants and community services. It is a place to meet friends and family at parks and events, a place where visitors feel at home. It is the community’s trailhead for the amenities and recreation that give Thompson Falls a quality of life on par with anywhere in the west. While downtown is a distinct part of the community, it works as a team with all of Thompson Falls. It is a culmination of all of these things that makes Thompson Falls a community where people choose to live.
