Aberdeen Main Street's annual VETERANS PARADE will take place on Saturday, June 25th . . . at 10:00 a.m. . . . in downtown Aberdeen!


   Revitalization of Aberdeen is the mission of Aberdeen Main Street - To work toward having a vital and attractive town for the present and for the future, and when rebuilding and restoring, to always protect and respect the great legacy from our past. 
We increase the tax base of Aberdeen by taking unoccupied or underutilized buildings and converting them into revenue producing businesses. By diversifying the business mix and recruiting new business, dollars that would have been spent elsewhere stay in the community. The efforts of Aberdeen Main Street encourage much needed building maintenance and facade rehabilitation - a revitalized town attracts new residents to settle in the area.

As the historic character of Aberdeen is preserved in its buildings, tourism and visitor related dollars are increased. This promotes the image of Aberdeen as a single entity; a fun, attractive place that serves as a hub of community life. It restores pride in the community!

What is the Aberdeen Main Street Approach?
The Aberdeen Main Street approach is a comprehensive process that strengthens a town's TOTAL IMAGE, not just the physical image, although that is the most visible part. Aberdeen Main Street's four-point approach is comprised of committees in the following areas:

  • ORGANIZATION - Establish a cooperative partnership among groups and individuals.

  • PROMOTION - Create a positive image of a town for residents, shoppers, visitors and investors.

  • DESIGN - Enhance the visual qualities of a town that make it a unique place to shop, work, or live

  • ECONOMIC RESTRUCTURING - Develop a diversified economic base while retaining and strengthening existing businesses.
