Greensburg is a unique city, boasting a distinct history, and a bright future. Though we are most widely known for the tornado that destroyed our city on May 4th, 2007, we refuse to be defined by tragedy. Rather than rebuild what was, we envisioned what could be – and we built that instead.
Greensburg is home to the most LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) buildings per capita in the U.S
We are the first city in the U.S. to use all LED streetlights. Greensburg is 100% renewable, 100% of the time. All of the electricity used in the City of Greensburg is wind energy.
With both a rural and modern approach, Greensburg is a small town practicing resilience, pioneering community and creating a legacy. We invite you to experience Greensburg for yourself.
