Our Story

School Bond Issue Sparks An Idea To Create A Digital Town Square
In Pleasantville, New York, in 1999, it was the defeat of a local school bond issue that sparked an idea
It was the idea of creating a central website to serve as a community forum that opened the doors for a new platform—a platform for a community to have their voices heard. A digital “town-square” was born.

Technology Enables Scaling
Struck by the power of this digital “town square” platform, the team at AmericanTowns began expanding
By 2008 the platform expanded to 29,000 towns across the country thanks to a test and learn approach to emerging technology.

Answering a Market Need
AmericanTowns’ unmatched ability to connect with communities at scale landed us our first platform client in 2012, instigating the creation of AmericanTowns Media. Seven years later, that brand continues to be a great client and AmericanTowns Media has partnered with numerous other top brands, providing credible and scalable local engagements. Over the years, AmericanTowns has proven to be a trusted resource and our goal of keeping a community connected coincides seamlessly with the needs of clients.
