Main Street Program

Main Street Reidsville was officially designated a Main Street Program in 1984. The purpose of the program is to assist the community in revitalizing the downtown commercial district through historic preservation. Through the North Carolina Main Street Program, the Reidsville Downtown Corporation can offer technical planning, organizational and training assistance, and design assistance services for building facade improvements and maintenance. Reidsville's Main Street program covers the downtown business district: Morehead Street to Williams Street and Main Street to the railroad track and all in between.

The National Main Street Center, established in 1980, is a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The National Main Street Center sponsors workshops and conferences, publishes training materials, offers a certification program in professional downtown management, produces the Great American Main Street Awards, and operates the National Main Street Network, a membership program that helps communities learn from each other's experiences. Today the Main Street Program works more than 1,600 towns and cities across our nation.
