Main Street Programs aim to revitalize their downtowns and commercial districts through preservation-based economic development and community revitalization. The project commenced in 1977 with a pilot involving 3 towns: Galesburg, Illinois, Madison, Indiana, and Hot Springs, South Dakota.[1] Since then, the program has been expanded to include many other towns. These may be statewide or regional "coordinating programs" or "local programs." Programs determined to be "Designated" follow best-practices established by the National Main Street Center and/or statewide or regional coordinating programs. A main street manager is appointed to implement the program locally. In 2020, there were 860 Nationally Accredited Main Street America programs.
