About Us

Main Street Momence is a 501(c) 3 non-profit preservation and downtown development organization working to revitalize Momence’s Victorian-era central business district. Momence is one of only 69 officially designated Main Street communities in the state of Illinois. The Illinois Main Street program operates out of the office of Governor Pat Quinn under the auspices of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Our volunteer-driven group employs as its redevelopment strategy the trademarked “Four-point Approach.” This method encompasses ongoing work in four distinct areas — Design, Economic Restructuring, Promotion and Organization — which, together, comprehensively address the commercial district's revitalization needs. We also hew to Main Street’s accompanying “Eight Guiding Principles,” which stress an incremental process of downtown revitalization, self-help, quality projects and an appreciation of our unique local assets.

MISSION

To preserve and promote the historic, cultural, social and economic vitality of downtown Momence and to foster a spirit of community teamwork that will result in a vibrant and inviting downtown district.
