At the beginning of 2012, Downtown Farmville was officially launched as one of Virginia’s newest Main Street® cities. The broad support from across Farmville was in evidence at a January 23rd kickoff event celebrating this milestone.
Farmville’s downtown district belongs to all of us who call Farmville “home”. Just as we tend our gardens and prepare for family events, the effort to build a stronger downtown community lies with us.
Your support is critical to the effort. The opportunity for community involvement as volunteers, financial supporters, and advocates will result in the comprehensive revitalization envisioned for Downtown Farmville.
The Mission of Downtown Farmville is to bring together the residents, merchants, and students of Farmville to preserve downtown’s role as the center of our historic community, and to plan for the future of Farmville as an exciting and profitable place to live, learn, open a business, and visit.
- to preserve the historical character of a small college town and to promote the economic and cultural vitality of its future.
