Winnsboro Main Street

The mission of Winnsboro Main Street is to preserve, restore, and encourage economic development in the Historic Downtown District in Winnsboro. The vision of Winnsboro Main Street is to see the development of a fully restored Historic District.


Winnsboro Main Street is a thriving non-profit organization that is the heartbeat of downtown Winnsboro. We are here to be a resource for local businesses in our downtown community. We desire to promote parish-wide economic development and support our own sub-committee, the Winnsboro Main Street Economic Committee, with strategic planning, project implementation, community outreach, and business development. We combine our efforts with those of the Town of Winnsboro, Winnsboro-Franklin Chamber of Commerce, Franklin Parish Tourism Commission, and the Princess Theatre to improve the quality of life in this town and Franklin Parish. We are recognized as an Affiliate Program with Louisiana Main Street and Main Street America.
