Kimmswick offers a chance to step back into the less hurried days of the 1800's. Enjoy a walk through a beautiful town with many one-of-a-kind shops that will inspire you. The cordial atmosphere of our restaurants will remind you of a time long past. With more than 25 shops and restaurants already, Kimmswick is growing and adding more shops all the time. As can be attested with a stroll through the historic town many of the shops occupy, and have restored, shops from the time the town was founded in 1859.
