Main Street Mount Holly is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization whose mission is to protect, promote and enhance historic Mount Holly’s downtown.
In June of 2003, Mount Holly was designated a Main Street community by the NJ Department of Community Affairs. Since then, municipal and county government, companies, organizations, and individuals have worked together to bring Mount Holly’s downtown business district back to life. The Main Street approach encourages economic development within the context of historic preservation in ways appropriate to today’s marketplace – advocating a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment and the rebuilding of traditional commercial districts based on their unique assets of distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership and a sense of community.
Main Street Mount Holly joined the Main Street New Jersey program in June 2003 and received National Main Street accreditation in 2004 form the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It has since received awards from the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society for its landscaping of Fountain Square, and from First Night International for creative programming for its yearly sculpture exhibits.
