Main Street

The National Main Street Center was established in 1980 as a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation as a way to address issues facing older and historic downtowns. The Main Street program focuses on the core principles of downtown revitalization, using the Four Point Approach of Design, Organization, Promotion, and Economic Restructuring. The Thomasville Main Street program began in 1981.

For nearly 20 years, the National Main Street Center has chosen five cities annually that embody the best of the best and has awarded them the designation of a Great American Main Street community. In 1998, Thomasville was the first Georgia city to earn this honor. Fewer than 100 cities across the U.S. have ever received this award.
