THIS PLACE MATTERS does your support

The work of preserving the character of a community's historic downtown calls for focused dedication, passion, and partnership.  Everyone benefits from an attractive space packed with genuine history, cultural destinations, great businesses, and terrific people. 


Since 2002, Crawfordsville Main Street has had the unique mission of serving and promoting our city's truly special Commercial Historic District.  Efforts are made possible by Your Gifts, and it works!  In Indiana, for every $1 invested in a Main Street Program, $56 in benefits are returned, earning Main Street the reputation as one of the most powerful economic revitalization tools in the nation.

Preservation. Vitality. Connection.  It's what we do, because of you.

Every gift makes a difference!
