La Grange Main Street’s mission is to sustain and grow the diversity, harmony, and economic vibrancy of the La Grange Main Street District.
Our vision is to create awareness of our community by celebrating our rich cultural heritage of railroads, “spirits”, and the arts.
In 2003, a group of citizens, city government officials and business owners, all concerned about the future of La Grange’s central historic district, decided to form a Main Street Program based on guidelines from the Kentucky Heritage Council and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. These organizations’ goals are to assist communities with downtown revitalization and economic development in the context of historic preservation.
The Kentucky Main Street Program (KYMS) announced that in 2015, 27 communities reported $76,126,662 of cumulative investment in their commercial downtown districts, representing $42,718,614 of private investment matched by $33,408,048 in public improvements. Since the program’s inception in 1979, $3.9 billion of public-private investment has been documented in communities throughout the Commonwealth.
