Our Mission

Established in 2013, the Downtown Mystic Merchants is a non-profit initiative aimed at promoting Historic Downtown Mystic economically, culturally and aesthetically for the merchants, residents and visitors of our Historic Downtown. Our mission is to enhance the experiences of shopping, eating, and simply strolling through our historic riverfront community.
