2021 Nationally Accredited Main Street America Program

Main Street Program Participant Since 2009


“As a Main Street America™ Accredited program, the Kings Mountain is a recognized leading program among the national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities who share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. All Main Street America™ Accredited programs meet a set of National Accreditation Standards of Performance as outlined by the National Main Street Center.”

We are proud to announce that 860 Main Street America programs across the nation have earned Accredited status, our top tier of recognition. This exclusive designation signifies a demonstrated commitment to comprehensive community revitalization and a proven track record of successfully applying the Main Street Approach™. We also congratulate the 341 programs that have been designated as Main Street America Affiliates this year. These programs are on the pathway to achieving meaningful economic, social, physical and organizational improvements in their downtowns and commercial districts.

 “We are thrilled to recognize this year’s Accredited and Affiliate programs and their dedication to the revitalization of their commercial districts,” said Patrice Frey, President & CEO of the National Main Street Center. “Their hard work to advance strong local economies and improve the quality of life in their downtowns is what makes our national movement so powerful. Especially during these difficult times, the Main Street Network will be crucial to strengthening local economies and ensuring downtowns remain vibrant in the years to come.”
