Organization of the Week: Main Street Gettysburg

Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of the United States.

This week, I am featuring the Main Street Gettysburg. Founded as Downtown Gettysburg in 1984, Main Street Gettysburg is a non-profit organization committed to the preservation and revitalization of historic Gettysburg for the benefits of its citizens, businesses, and visitors.

The organization has encouraged the rehabilitation of commercial buildings in the Historic District of Gettysburg, partnered with state and national organizations to achieve the common goal of interpreting and preserving Gettysburg, and began start-up operations in 2009 at the Wills House Museum before it was transferred as a cost-saving measure to the Gettysburg Foundation.

For more information on Main Street Gettysburg, please call 717-337-3491 or visit www.mainstreetgettysburg.org.

If you are a member of a non-profit organization or know of one that you would like to see featured on this site, please let us know in the comments or send an e-mail to kelly@thehistorygirl.com.
