Downtown Mooresville: Something Old, Something New
Mooresville’s downtown sector can be seen as something of a conundrum. On the one hand, interesting flashes of history are part of the town’s character, but on the other hand, Mooresville, Indiana appears to be a modern Midwest city, small town that it is. Rural appeal and old-fashioned shops and businesses in downtown Mooresville are juxtaposed with the modern, the practical, and the up-and-coming. Mooresville, nicknamed the “Crossroads of Progress,” likes to think of itself community on the move, and its downtown neighborhoods reflect that, along with Mooresville’s history and deep Quaker heritage.
