The Show's Mission
To raise awareness of historic Main Street communities and downtown districts across America as destinations for travel, entertainment and reinvestment.
"If walls could talk, just imagine what an entire Main Street would say. The incredible stories of Main Street America—from small towns and mid-sized communities, to urban commercial districts—are worth telling. Their stories, as unique and varied as they are, speak to our collective history. These are the places that we live, work and play; they are the very heart and soul of our communities."
