History of Main Street


Main Street America is a program of the National Main Street Center. We revitalize older and historic commercial districts to build vibrant neighborhoods and thriving economies.

The National Main Street Center was established as a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1980 as a way to address the myriad issues facing older and historic downtowns during that time. Working with a nationwide network of coordinating programs and local communities, Main Street has helped over 2,000 communities across the country bring economic vitality back downtown, while celebrating their historic character, and bringing communities together.

Kansas Main Street

Empowering Downtowns

The Kansas Main Street program provides technical assistance and support for communities. We assist local programs in developing transformational strategies that articulate a focused, deliberate path to revitalizing and strengthening their downtown or commercial district’s economy. Centered around four points—economic vitality, design, promotion and organization—these strategies guide local programs toward a distinct vision of what they want their community, and downtown, to be.

The Main Street ApproachTM has proven to be one of the most cost-effective economic revitalization tools available for communities and urban centers. What started as a small pilot program in the late 1970s has grown to include nearly 2,000 communities in more than 40 states. Throughout the country, communities have utilized the Main Street Approach to rally residents around a focused enhancement strategy that transforms their community and enhances their quality of life.
