Leavenworth Main Street Program, Inc. ®

The Leavenworth, Kansas Main Street Program fosters economic development and historic preservation with downtown Leavenworth, Kansas, the first city of Kansas, established in 1854.


Leavenworth Main Street was established in 1995 and is an accredited program with the National Main Street Center. The program utilizes the Main Street four-point approach to revitalization: economic restructuring, design, organization/membership and promotion and has been successful in revitalization of a large full service, 24 block, historic downtown with over 250 businesses.


The program provides guidance, assistance, education and resources for small business startups, second- and third-stage growth and entrepreneurial development.
