We are a semi-finalist for a national award! The Great America Main Street Award promotes and recognizes communities that have done an exceptional job in promoting downtown as a great place to live, work, play, and visit. It is because of Main Street Chillicothe's sponsors, partners, and stakeholders that this is even possible. This is exciting news for the community! Check out below what Main Street America wrote about our community and be sure to tune in next March to see if we are a winner!

 

Main Street Chillicothe (Chillicothe, MO) is a 2018 Great American Main Street Award semi-finalist!

Chillicothe, nestled in the green, rolling hills of Northern Missouri, is a vibrant community brimming with small town hospitality and charm—as well as all the amenities and conveniences of a larger locale. Did we also mention that it was the first city in the world to offer commercially sliced bread to the public in 1928?

Main Street Chillicothe attributes its many successes to strong partnerships with local government, the business sector, and community stakeholders. For example, Main Street partnered with the Chillicothe Farmers Market on Sliced Bread Saturday to help educate and promote residents of the importance of using local, fresh goods. And thanks to an award-winning retail incubator, Main Street Holiday House, a once blighted area of downtown has been transformed into a hub of commerce and activity.
