The Main Street Approach

The Main Street Approach is a comprehensive approach to downtown revitalization, combining historic preservation with economic development. This method is used by communities across the nation to restore a positive image and create a healthy marketplace by focusing on  four points:  Promotion, Organization, Design and Economic Restructuring.
In Texas, the Main Street Program is a department of the Texas Historical Commission.  Communities across the state are selected to participate in the program with assistance and guideance from the state office.

Canton Main Street Program celebrates 12 years.

The Canton Main Street Program is administered locally through volunteers and paid staff under the Canton Economic Development Corporation.  Canton Main Street strives to preserve the historical and cultural heritage of Downtown Canton, restore a positive image, and create economic growth for the community through historic preservation activities, retail and tourism opportunities.    

Canton Main Street has received recognition from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
