Downtown Hagerstown Visitor Welcome Center Undergoes Renovation

Downtown Hagerstown Visitor Welcome Center Undergoes Renovation

The CVB is proud to announce that phase one of the renovation is nearing completion at its downtown Visitor Welcome Center located at 6 North Potomac Street. The new space is fully operational and is awaiting some final touches. The CVB opened the Visitor Welcome Center in 2000 and this is the first time changes have been made to the space. Renovations include a new visitor-friendly reception desk, new paint, carpeting, and fixtures. The redesigned space offers more efficient storage for the large amount of printed material the CVB makes available to visitors and travelers. The interior walls will feature large Washington County images. One of the biggest aesthetic changes in the Visitor Welcome Center is its front windows. In the past the windows featured striking displays, either seasonal or based on area events. The large window spaces have been cleared so visitors can see directly into the welcome center.
The Visitor Welcome Center is operated by the CVB, and located in space rented from the City of Hagerstown. The CVB is funding the entire renovation project. The second phase of the renovation will involve new displays and additional rack space. The plan is to incorporate interactive technology to provide visitors with the information and tools they need to make choices about dining, lodging, exploring, and sightseeing in Washington County.
The renovation project is being coordinated by CVB Director of Operations Jolene Thomas; members of the CVB Board of Directors including Julie Rohm, General Manager of the Valley Mall, and Kevin Moriarty, Director of the Washington County Arts Council; and CVB President Tom Riford.
