Main Street Revitalization

Welcome to Main Street!

The Historic Main Street Columbia Association (HMSCA), a designated official Illinois Main Street program and 501c3 organization, represents stakeholders within the Main Street District. The HMSCA seeks to encourage economic development while maintaining the historic integrity and unique architectural features in ways appropriate to today's marketplace. The Association   follows the Main Street approach advocating a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets: distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a sense of community.

For more information about the ongoing revitalization of Columbia's Main Street, please contact Andrea Yochum, Executive Director for Historic Main Street Columbia Association.
