Since 1983, Columbia Main Street has been working to re-energize historic downtown Columbia by bringing life back to the place that was once the area’sprimary hub of social and economic activity.

One of Tennessee’s first five Main Street communities, Columbia Main Street implements a rejuvenation process that involves four major components: a design plan that recaptures the historical flavor and beauty of the community through restoration, the attraction of a viable mix of businesses to cater to community needs, ongoing promotion of the downtown district, and a strong organization to spearhead the effort.

The potential payoffs of Columbia Main Street’s approach are great. Building owners enjoy higher property values, and merchants enjoy stronger sales. Local government receives increased tax revenues. The corporate sector views the community as an attractive location for business, and the general public takes pride in the revitalized image of the heart of their downtown.
