Dorney left an endowment for the community that has funded many arts and education projects in the community. It also is the basis for the community foundation.

The renovated plaza features grassy areas, a walkway, and some stone benches. Architect Jerry Murray says the stone for the benches came from the same quarry as the stone used for the Hancock County Courthouse. Dorney Plaza sits just to the south of the courthouse on South Main Street.
