About the Main Street District

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes to keep our downtown looking its best? That’s where Main Street Washington (MSW) comes in!

Think of us as your friendly downtown cheerleaders. We cover that charming 7-block by 6-block area centered around the heart of Washington, Central Park. Our main goal? To keep our downtown not just beautiful, but also thriving!

What makes Washington’s downtown so special? It’s the unique personality! Each building tells a story, they were literally constructed one at a time reflecting the styles and dreams of the people who built them. At MSW, we love that history.

That’s why we use a double dose of magic: historic preservation and economic development. We’ve got access to special grants just for Main Street programs, and we work with local owners to breathe new life into these historic buildings.

The result? A vibrant downtown that’s both charming and full of opportunity! We can’t wait for you to visit!
