2023 Great American Main Street Award
The Downtown Florence Main Street Program is incredibly honored to be named a winner of the 2023 Great American Main Street Award.
The Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA) recognizes communities for excellence in revitalizing their historic downtowns and commercial corridor districts through comprehensive preservation-based methods provided by the Main Street Approach™. Since the award’s inception in 1995, over 100 Main Street programs have been honored as GAMSA communities. The Downtown Florence Main Street Program is only the second South Carolina Main Street to ever win a GAMSA and the last time a program won the award was 2003.
Being selected as a winner of the 2023 Great American Main Street Award is an unbelievable honor—it’s the once in a lifetime achievement representing the boundless investment, hard work, tenacity, and vision from local investors and partners, small business owners and residents, government officials and leaders, and our statewide Main Street network over the last twenty years—and especially over the last decade.
