Learn More Mainstreet/Downtown Development
Founded in 1982, Main Street Washington has been a driving force in the revitalization of Downtown Washington for more than 30 years, using the guiding principles of design, promotion, organization, and economic development developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Downtown Washington provides a historic, small-town environment that encourages business, economic, and cultural opportunities.
Washington’s Downtown Development Authority is increasing quality development by driving economic growth while redefining the role of downtown as a crucial element in the continuing health and growth of the broader community.
