Over the past 25 years, the Main Street movement has transformed the way communities think about the revitalization and management of their downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts. Cities and towns across the nation have come to see that a prosperous, sustainable community is only as healthy as its core. Downtown is the core of our community.

Historic buildings physically connect us to the past. Our Main Streets tell us who we are and who we were, and how the past has shaped us. Downtown is the place of shared memory where people still come together to live, work and play.

Over 1,600 communities nationwide have adopted the Main Street approach in the past 25 years to look again at Main Street, their heart of the community, to save its historic buildings, to revive its commercial core, to strengthen business, to control community-eroding sprawl, and keep a sense of place and community life in America.
