Rehoboth Named ‘Top 5 Main Street’

by Dave on March 4, 2009

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has bestowed upon Rehoboth Beach one of five Great American Main Street Awards for 2009. From the Trust’s blog:

Each year since 1995, the National Trust Main Street Center has recognized five historic and older downtowns and neighborhood business districts that are truly the commercial and cultural hearts of their communities. These are also places that offer tourists refreshing and authentic experiences.

In 2009, we celebrate El Dorado, Arkansas; Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; Broadway in Green Bay, Wisconsin; Federal Hill in Baltimore, Maryland; and Livermore, California. Led by local Main Street organizations, these downtown revitalization efforts have brought jobs to their communities, filled streets with festival-goers, lined sidewalks with attractive landscaping and lighting, and helped so many business owners meet their markets and thrive.

Visit for more, including a slide show from each of the towns.
