Downtown Gillette

This undated photo captures downtown Gillette businesses between Second Street and Third Street, including Murphy Drug and NZ Shoes. Gillette Avenue, from First Street to Seventh Street was recently accepted to the National Register of Historic Places as a historic downtown district.

It’s official: downtown Gillette is historic.

While Campbell County residents can speak at length on the role Gillette Avenue has played in the town’s history, it now has the honor of being recognized on a national level.
