Rooted in history, focused on the future.

Papillion’s downtown began with the original 1870 plat of the town and has grown to be a vital area of over 80 small businesses and great public spaces. This is the “heartbeat” of the community.

Recognizing the critical role of main street business in America, the small business community of Papillion came together in the Spring of 2013 as the “Historical Downtown Papillion Business Association.” (HDPBA).
