Railroad Museum Wins Award

Received the Premiere Partner Award with Team Cleveland Main Street The Mississippi Main Street Association (MMSA) celebrated achievements of Mississippi Main Street Communities at the Annual Awards Luncheon at The South Warehouse in downtown Jackson.   The annual awards luncheon honors Main Street directors, board members and volunteers and recognizes the most outstanding downtown development and preservation projects and events from Main Street communities in Mississippi.  The Martin and Sue King Railroad Heritage Museum received the Premiere Partner Award with Team Cleveland Main Street, recognizing the museum’s outstanding programming efforts and contributions to increased downtown activity.   MMSA staff presented the 2022 awards to recipients from Designated Main Street Communities throughout the state.  “The Annual Awards Luncheon is the highlight of our year where we get to celebrate the people, projects, and initiatives that make Mississippi’s downtowns the hub of activity in their communities,” said Thomas Gregory, MMSA Executive Director. “Our local Main Street programs work hard to implement a strategic plan of work focused on downtown revitalization, and we are proud to recognize the success stories that our programs accomplished over the past year.”  Anna Sledge, director of the Martin and Sue King Railroad Heritage Museum and member of the Team Cleveland promotions committee, accepted the award on behalf of the Railroad Heritage Museum and Team Cleveland Main Street.   In 2021, Mississippi Main Street’s Designated Communities generated 193 net new businesses, 49 business expansions to existing businesses, 603 net new jobs, 58 building rehabilitations, and 241 downtown residential units. In addition, 95 public improvement projects were completed as well as 14 new construction projects in downtown business districts. More than $186 million was invested by the public and private sectors in 2021, and more than 28,452 volunteer hours were recorded.  Every dollar spent in this organization results in $80 of private investment, the highest return on investment of any economic activity in the state. Since 1993, MMSA has generated more than $5.9 billion in private and public investment (including more than $1.6 billion in public investment). MMSA currently has 48 Designated Main Street Communities, five Network Communities, and 13 Associate Communities. Team Cleveland Main Street has been part of the Mississippi Main Street organization since 1990.
