Berryville Main Street is a not-for-profit founded in 1988 to promote and support downtown Berryville as the retail, commercial and cultural center of Berryville and Clarke County.
In 1992 Berryville Main Street was accepted into the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Main Street” program, created to promote the revitalization of small towns across the USA. It is one of only 24 towns in the state of Virginia to achieve this prestigious designation.
Though national in scope, the initiative is administered by the states. In Virginia, it’s called the Virginia Main Street Program. Each Main Street program uses the same four point approach to achieve its goals. The four points of the Main Street approach correspond with the four forces of real estate value, which are social, political, physical, and economic.
In 2009, Berryville Main Street opened the Fire House Gallery and Shop on Main Street. The shop shares space with the Main Street office and is there to help promote artisans in Clarke County and nearby vicinity. You can check their site at firehousegalleryandshop.com.
