Downtown

gazeboCentral to downtown McKenzie is the scenic "Downtown Veterans Memorial Park." Its towering trees and landscaped corners surround the central gazebo that shelters various events during the year. The park is beautified by city caretakers as well as by members of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority and McKenzie Garden Club.

The park contains a World War I era cannon and the Carroll County War Memorial, upon which are inscribed the names of countians whose lives were lost in wars throughout history. A landscaped corner of the park is dedicated to McKenzie's Company A, 230th Engineer Battalion National Guard unit and to Dusty Carroll, son of Pat and Debra Carroll, who was killed near Baghdad on July 31, 2005, when an IED exploded alongside the Hummer in which he was a passenger.

Downtown businesses include a pharmacy and gift shop, clothing stores, furniture stores, gift shops, the public library, restaurant, a newspaper office and more. Also located around the downtown square is the Gordon Browning Genealogical Museum, which contains extensive history on the city of McKenzie and neighboring communities, genealogical information, and numerous displays of historical significance.

The downtown area is rich in history with many of the buildings having been maintained since the early 1900s, including one of the areas only remaining railroad depots.
