Main Street program recognized nationally

The Mount Vernon Main Street program has been recognized for the 12th time as a Nationally Accredited Main Street program by the National Main Street Center/Main Street America TM (MSA) at its national conference in Kansas City, Mo. last week.

The Texas Historical Commission (THC) recommended the local program based on its successful 2017 annual progress report - one of 68 Main Street communities in Texas to be recognized this year. To learn more about this honor, see the April 5 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
