Heritage Square to close at end of 2015

posted by:

The Victorian-themed entertainment village Heritage Square will close at the end of 2015.

“We are announcing the closure of Heritage Square in advance of the season to afford the public the opportunity to enjoy the property, shops and attractions one final season,” said Heritage Square property manager Peter Bovis.

A local institution that has struggled in recent years, the majority of the theme park will close on December 31, 2015. The amusement park and Victorian Event Center will remain open as stand-alone operations, according to Bovis. But all shops and businesses, as well as the beloved alpine slide and other major attractions, will be gone for good.

“We’ve looked at this, there’s a lot of money that would need to be invested into Heritage Square to bring it back to what people may have remembered from 20 years ago. We’re hopeful everybody will come out for this last season and support the vendors and entertainers.”

    This just breaks my heart! I’m sitting here sobbing as I write this. My family moved here in 1985 and have wonderful memories of great times spend there. My husband & I spent many a weekend evening there. i still shop there. Wing of Eagles is my favorite. I get the most unusual gifts for family & friends back East there. Things they can’t find back there. It’s the first place I take my visitors! The ambiance you get there us unique. Losing Heritage Square is a disaster in the making! Does anyone know how it can be declared a Historical Site & protected for the future?

    I always enjoyed going to the Musicals there and went to the last performance in December 2014. Nice Memories and Heritage Square has seen better days….things come and things go.
