The National Trust for Historic Preservation, concerned about continuing threats to main streets’ commercial architecture and aware of the need to stimulate economic activity in small-city downtowns, established the Main Street Program. Since 1980, the Main Street Program has emerged across the country as a major force in downtown revitalization. There are over 900 participating cities, worldwide, with over 60 cities in Florida alone.
St. Cloud Main Street Program, which began in September 1999, is a comprehensive revitalization program designed to encourage ongoing economic development in conjunction with historic preservation. Our goal is to bring more recognition on our downtown and what it all has to offer. We are a non-profit organization funded by sponsors, memberships, city and county governments and ran by community volunteers.
Here are a few projects we're currently working on.
Inscribed Brick Program Historical Markers
Historic Walking Tour
Decorative Pole Banners
Business & Building Inventory
Signage and Mural Plaques
10 Buildings to apply for state historic markers and/or National Register.
Stroll through the historic St. Cloud Main Street
program area and take a step back in time… start
the day with a hearty southern breakfast. Then
spend a leisurely morning browsing through the
unique storefronts along Tenth Street, New York,
Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Florida Avenues
featuring antiques, appliances, clocks, furniture,
arts and crafts, and so much more.
