Partners in Preservation: Main Streets

Main Street America has joined the National Trust for Historic Preservation, American Express, and National Geographic for Partners in Preservation: Main Streets! Your votes will decide which Main Street districts in need of preservation support will be awarded $2 million in American Express-funded grants.

From first dates to shopping sprees, Main Streets are where people come together for shared experiences that help shape their lives. Let’s celebrate the historic places where these memories are made and make sure they’re preserved for generations to come.

From September 25 through October 31, you can vote for up to five Main Streets once a day to receive a share of the funding at

Just as American Express has motivated millions of Americans to shop along their Main Streets during Small Business Saturday, the 2017 Partners in Preservation: Main Streets campaign will create national awareness of the connection between historic preservation and our country’s thriving Main Streets. When we support our local historic sites and districts, we drive development, preserve character, attract visitors, and propel commerce.

We also invite you to share your experiences and celebrate your favorite Main Streets on social media using #VoteYourMainStreet. And once you vote, don’t forget to enter National Geographic’s sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip for two to New York, Miami, or Los Angeles.
