Main Street Amherst

Preserving Our Heritage In an effort to preserve Amherst’s heritage, the City was pleased to receive the designation of Main Street Amherst in 2002. Main Street Amherst is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and maintain an economically vital historic downtown and business district that is attractive and accessible to people of all ages. The City received the designation from Heritage Ohio, Inc., a statewide, not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and assisting people and organizations to protect and preserve our heritage. The Main Street program is designed to improve all aspects of the downtown or central business district, producing both tangible and intangible benefits. Improving economic management, strengthening public participation and making downtown a fun place to visit are as critical to Main Street’s future as recruiting new businesses, rehabilitating buildings and expanding parking. The Main Street program has earned national recognition as a practical strategy appropriately scaled to a community’s local resources and conditions. And because it is a locally driven program, all initiative stems from local issues and concerns. Main Street Amherst volunteers are striving to bring special events to the downtown and surrounding area to increase public awareness of what goods and services are available to the general public. Our motto has become WINE TIME: Participants strolled downtown and enjoyed samples during the annual Wine & Chocolate Walk.
