ABOUT THE PRC
Who we are
The Philipsburg Revitalization Corporation is a non-profit community-based organization dedicated to preserving the quality of life and peaceful small town heritage by promoting community and economic development.
The PRC hosts a variety of events through the year, including Antique Appraisal Day on the second Saturday in March, the Wine Walk and Brew HaHa on the last Friday in May, Shop Small Saturday on the last Saturday in November, and Home for the Holidays on the first Saturday in December.
In 2020 the PRC purchased adjoining blighted buildings at 104 and 110 N Front Street. Volunteers are needed to assist in the renovation process as we bring these historic structures back to viability. Donations will be gratefully accepted as we work to make these buildings an asset to the community.
