For more that 50 years, downtown New Philadelphia has maintained a business based, non-profit organization with a mission focused upon a long-term commitment to revitalizing, promoting and providing economic development opportunities within the historic downtown of the Tuscarawas County seat. Today as an important manufacturing and viable business center, New Philadelphia maintains its historic place as the social and economic focus of the surrounding area.

In 1999, New Philadelphia became one of the first Ohio communities to make the commitment to bring back the former vitality to the historic central business district. The “Town Square” is anchored on the northeast by the 1882 Courthouse that was completely restored over a 2 year period in the mid 1990’s. During the renovation, original artwork was found behind fake ceilings and restored. On the northwest quadrant of the square is the downtown gazebo, home to special events throughout the year such as our Merchants and Artists Walks and Christmas Lighting Ceremony. Our entire square area is a welcoming site where visitors and locals can mingle at the picnic tables and benches throughout the year enjoying our special events or simply the atmosphere of this lovely.
Whether you are a resident or guest, we truly welcome you into downtown home to many NPBCA members representing a varied professional interest ranging from tourism, retail, industry, financial and professional service providers to restaurateurs, New Philadelphia City School, Tuscarawas County Public Library and the City of New Philadelphia all uniting to prosper New Philadelphia.
Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly planning and informational meetings held the first Thursday of each month at 8:00 a.m. at the Tuscarawas County Convention and Visitors Bureau located at 124 East High Avenue.  For more information on joining the New Philadelphia Business and Community Association, please email npbca@newphiladelphia.org or call 330/602-1419.
