Holly Springs re-accredited by Main Street program

Holly Springs announced it has again been accredited as a Main Street America community, a designation it says recognizes the city’s commitment to preservation-based economic development.

The Office of Downtown Development of the Georgia Department of Community Affairs evaluated the Holly Springs Main Street Program in partnership with the National Main Street Center on 10 national performance standards, including fostering strong public-private partnerships and preserving historic buildings.

“We have a wonderful Main Street board, chaired by Dr. Ollie Evans with Holly Springs Chiropractic & Massage, that tirelessly give of their time and talents to make Holly Springs a great place to be,” said Erin Honea, Main Street director. “During 2018, special events brought in over 10,000 guests, and volunteers gave over 200 hours of their time.”

Holly Springs has been an accredited Main Street America community since 2015. The National Main Street Center is a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
