The New Albany Main Street Association, established in 1996, is a non-profit committed to historic preservation and community vibrancy. Since its founding, The Main Street Association has helped spearhead the revitalization of New Albany’s historic downtown core. The organization and its partners –made up of businesses, professionals, financial institutions, and individuals– have done it by following the four-point program of The National Main Street Center of the National Trust for Historic Preservation: Organization, Design, Promotion and Economic Restructuring.
Currently, as downtown celebrates over twenty years of substantial growth, the Main Street Association continues working the four point approach in the historic district as well in other areas of the city. Organizing festivals, supporting the local farmers' market, designing signage for key entryways, partnering with the Union County Library to provide free community events, collaborating with garden clubs and schools to promote programs, and conducting work days with volunteer groups from the local Boys & Girls Club and The University of Mississippi are just a few of the projects that Main Street has taken on to support the entire city of New Albany.
