Oxford recently received an Award of Excellence for Planning & Public Spaces for the downtown streetscape project. Gwen Parrish with Vine Chircopratic was also named Historic Main Street Oxford's Main Street Hero for her contribution to the downtown district.

Annually, Main Street Alabama hosts an Awards of Excellence Reception for Designated Main Street Communities that nominate projects and activities in their district. Due to COVID, we were not able to have the reception.

Historic Main Street Oxford nominated Mrs. Gwen Parrish (The Vine Chiropractic LLC) for our Main Street Hero Award. Gwen goes above and beyond for not only downtown but our whole city and community! We are truly honored for her support to our program.

The City of Oxford received the Award of Excellence for Planning & Public Space for our Downtown Streetscape Project.

Most Main Street directors would agree...discoveries like this are the BEST!!

Last fall, during the downtown streetscape, I got a call that a stairwell leading underneath the old Thames Pharmacy building was found when replacing sidewalks. I rushed over and carefully walked through the massive space. It was a treat to see hidden history, but I DID NOT LINGER. Instead, I snapped this photo to document the discovery. 🤓👻🎃 #secretspaces #hiddenhideaways #mywetumpka

What a creative way to greet paddlers competing in the Great Alabama 650 as they travel through Wetumpka. The Great Alabama 650 is a 650-mile paddle race that begins in Northwest Alabama and ends in the Mobile Bay.

Competitors from the Great Alabama 650 are beginning to pass through downtown! ECEDA was there to greet them with those hand-painted paddles early this morning. Best of luck to everyone!! #wearerecreation #wearecreative #wearewetumpka

From our Main St. to Yours... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ~ The Historic Downtown Hartselle Merchants.
Merry Christmas to the Main Street Alabama staff and their families, and to all the cities across the state!!! You have made this a year to be merry about. And lastly to a very special lady who is near and dear to you. I came across an old letter, that I wanted to share: 'Twas the night before Christmas & all through the town not a person was stirring, not even the town clown. But behold, just whom do we happen to meet-- a groovy young lady they call "Mary Mainstreet"! Quick as a flash she went spreading good cheer, wishing"Merry Christmas & Happy New Year"! This little tale is true of you, Mary. What a wonderful year we've had with you at the helm! Merry Christmas and "Thank You" from all of us.' -the Emporia, KS Main Street Board of Directors, 2000 I thought this epitomizes how hard she works for "Her City(s)", and how much she is appreciated and loved.
