Our Partners

Main Street Chillicothe is not alone in working to bring new life and growth downtown. We have a number of local and state partners who are dedicated to seeing our community thrive.

Chillicothe Area Chamber of Commerce 
Working to help local businesses and our community succeed, the Chamber is committed to downtown revitalization. It supported marketing and branding campaign for Main Street Chillicothe and co-hosts some of our most popular events including our women's night out fundraiser, Piccadilly Gala.

Greater Chillicothe Visitors Region
Working to draw visitors to the area, we have partnered with the Greater Chillicothe Visitors Region on several projects and events, including mural tours. It was also a key supporter of the 2009 Main Street Chillicothe marketing and branding campaign.

Chillicothe Area Arts Council
Main Street Chillicothe is proud to partner with the Chillicothe Area Arts Council to bring art to life in Chillicothe. The Arts Council strives to expose local communities to the arts through music and live theater.

Chillicothe Development Corporation
Main Street Chillicothe was founded by the Chillicothe Development Corporation to bring commerce and tourism back to the heart of the community. CDC continues to work closely with the Main Street program specifically on the murals and façade renovations.

City of Chillicothe
The City of Chillicothe has been working to develop a progressive community to live, play and do business in since 1855. We have partnered with the city on many occasions, from annual events to highly successful downtown beautification efforts to the recent passage of the historic preservation ordinance. 


            Missouri Main Street Connection
            Main Street Chillicothe is proud to be an accredited Main Street program and member of Missouri Main                Street Connection. The organization employs the Main Street Four-Point Approach® to Revitalization, as                 developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Center.

DREAM Initiative
A collaboration between the Missouri Development Finance Board, Missouri Department of Economic Development and Missouri Housing Development Commission, DREAM has provided Chillicothe with education, strategic planning support, and prioritized access to state programs. 

                Main Street America              
                The National Main Street Center has led the development of a national network of over 2,000                                  historic downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts: Main Street America™. The people who                      make up Main Street America are passionate advocates, dedicated volunteers, influential                                           stakeholders, and community organizers who work every day to turn the tide in their   communities-                                                                        catalyzing reinvestment, creating jobs, and fostering pride of place.

  Livingston County
                Livingston County partners with Main Street financially and by sending staff to sit on boards and committees, including our Presiding Commissioner sitting on our board. They also are involved with making the courthouse accessible and having a staff person present during our downtown events to help us in preparation for those events.


              Cultural Corner Art Guild
              Cultural Corner Art Guild and Main Street have worked together to find a building downtown, design                      the mural on the side of the building, partner together on events and on hosting workshops for visitors.

Check out our full list of Sponsors and Friends of Main Street. Without their financial support, Main Street Chillicothe would be unable to hold events in our historic downtown, help facilitate projects, or spread our vision of revitalizing downtown Chillicothe.
