Columbia Main Street Board

Columbia Main Street Corporation is a  501c3 non-profit organization made up of no more than 15 board members who serve 3-year terms, that focuses on downtown preservation and the economic vitality of the historic downtown. Columbia Main Street is recognized as an accredited National Main Street America community and has been working to promote and enhance the historic downtown since 1984 by following the National Main Street Four-Point Approach: design, promotion, organization, and economic vitality.

Columbia Main Street's mission is to champion the charm, community, and commerce of Columbia by strengthening the authentic identity and historic character of downtown Columbia by working with local government, local businesses, and community members. Together, we unify the downtown district by creating a family-focused destination where people want to live, desire to work, love to play, and wish to return.
