Covington earns Tennessee Main Street accreditation


The city of Covington has become the latest member of the Tennessee Main Street Program. The seat of Tipton County joins 46 other Tennessee Main Street communities accredited through the state program and Main Street America, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The Main Street Program provides training, support and grant opportunities to assist in downtown revitalization efforts. The program will focus on adaptive reuse of historic commercial buildings for community events and economic vitality. The Tennessee Main Street Program requires communities to illustrate a commitment from local government and other local organizations, have an adequate organizational budget, hire a dedicated program manager, have a strong historic preservation ethic and a collection of historic commercial buildings and a walkable district.
