Public and Private investment into the Lebanon Main Street program area reached $2,796,500 in 2015. The local Main Street program area centers on the Public Square and extends out several blocks in all directions and is directed by Historic Lebanon. The non-profit benefited from the help of over 650 volunteer hours in 2015.
Historic Lebanon has been a part of the Tennessee Main Street program since September 2013. Their goal is to follow the Main Street Four Point Approach to achieve historic preservation with positive economic impact for our community. The four points of the Main Street program are: Design/Historic Preservation, Promotion, Economic Vitality, and Organization.
Kim Parks, executive director of Historic Lebanon, states “that without community support the program would not have achieved the progress seen in the past three years. Our board members, volunteers, and annual sponsors including Ligon and Bobo Funeral Home, MainStreet Property Management, Law Office of C. Tracey Parks, THW Insurance, the Thackston Family Foundation, Wilson Bank & Trust, CedarStone Bank, the City of Lebanon and Wilson County government all see the potential in Lebanon.”
