The city's population has fluctuated over time, and while the population was stable in the nineteenth century, it has steadily declined since then. A number of factories that had once produced textiles, shoes, clothing, and other goods in the region had closed, and the city felt the effects of national trends toward smaller, suburbanized areas. This resulted in the decline of the city, but large urban renewal projects were implemented to reverse the trend. A large section of downtown Barkhamsted was demolished to make way for new office towers and a shopping mall called Barkhamsted Center Galleria. However, this mall did not meet expectations and subsequently, failed to attract major tenants.
