Silver City MainStreet is an accredited New Mexico MainStreet program committed to working with our community to foster economic development in our historic downtown. We do this through collaboration and promotion of downtown events, improvements to and preservation of our historic district, and the development of new and creative uses for downtown buildings. In 2011, we won the Great American Main Street Award given to only 3 communities each year.
Some of our many successful projects include Street Lights, Silver City Gateway Arch, Big Ditch Park development, the Main Street Plaza, numerous beautification projects, the restoration of the historic Silco Theater and Stories From Our Streets: Discover the Town That Was Built to Last, a downtown walking tour highlights the colorful history of our downtown.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Silver City MainStreet has stepped up to provide on-the-ground support of our small local businesses, offering technical assistance and support through our Small Businesses Assistance Program. We have funded 42 projects to keep businesses operating along with promotions such as the virtual Cash Mobs and GoFundLocal campaigns.
Our mission is: To encourage a vibrant, historic downtown Silver City that is recognized as the heart of our diverse community.
We are proud of our downtown historic district, and encourage you to stroll about the eclectic businesses and interesting architecture.
