Cedar Falls celebrates Main street

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- One of the oldest main street development programs in Iowa is celebrating its 21st birthday.

"21 years ago they were thinking about possibly tearing down some of our old buildings in the 100 block and replacing those beautiful buildings with parking spaces," said Jan Anderson with Comunity Main Street.

Instead, Community Main Street was created.  The old buildings were restored and new businesses were recrutited.

Since then, Cedar Falls has won the Great American Main Street Award and was named one of the 1st Cultural Districts in the state.
