The Role of Main Street Wellington, Inc. in Our Community

The citizens of Wellington and the surrounding communities should never take Wellington's beautiful downtown for granted. Over the years, it has been the work of many people - our elected officials, employees of the Village, and others who have volunteered their time and energy - who have worked to ensure that the picturesque historic district has been nurtured and preserved. The entire community benefits from an inviting downtown of which residents can be proud.

Main Street Wellington, Inc. was organized in 1998 by a group of citizens who were concerned about the deteriorating conditions of the downtown area. Set up as a 501(c) (3), non-profit, membership association, the organization followed the successful "Main Street Approach," created by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. One key employee was hired to oversee the operation of the group; and the committees were comprised of volunteers who cared about the historic downtown district and had various areas of expertise.

The mission statement created in 1998 is still the same today: "To revitalize the central business district while preserving its historic character." This core area of Wellington, officially listed in 1976 on the National Register of Historic Places, covers about 4 blocks. 85% of the 78 buildings in this historic district were constructed from 1850 - 1900.

For retail and service businesses to operate successfully in the Village, the organization developed a plan to jump-start the district. The sidewalks needed replaced, more parking areas were necessary, and an attractive streetscape plan needed to be implemented. The buildings needed work with layers of paint or vinyl siding hiding the original charm of the district. New reasons to visit the downtown needed to be developed.

Since its inception in 1998, Main Street Wellington accomplishments include:

The office of Main Street Wellington is located at 118 Herrick Avenue West. The building was donated to the organization by the Larry Broome Family in 1999. The two-story, brick structure was built in 1878. By taking advantage of the Community Development Block Grants, Main Street Wellington has been able to make improvements to the building.
