We invite you to visit Downs any time of the year and see for yourself why this community has a positive reputation for staying vital and alive in rural America.
Kansas is made of small towns with big dreams. We can help make those dreams come true by working hard and supporting each other. From main street shops to family farms, Kansans have pressed through the challenges to provide for our families and communities. We think that's something to be proud of. That's why we want to hold onto these dreams for future generations. When you shop local, you help do that. It keeps jobs and tax dollars in the community you care about. By buying local, we support ourselves. The City of Downs supports Kansas. Join us, be Kansas Proud. (Original from KWCH 12 website) #smallerisbetter #ksproud
“First Impressions” is a program developed by K-State Research and Extension through the Community Vitality program. The focus of the program is to help communities learn about existing strengths and weaknesses through the eyes of visitor. The results from a “First Impressions” visit can serve as the basis for community action and as a way to document changes in a community over time.
