ROCKWALL, TX (June 22, 2022) – For the 13th year in a row, the City of Rockwall has been designated as an Accredited Main Street America™ program for meeting rigorous performance standards in the Historic Downtown Rockwall District. Rockwall has received accreditation every year since Main Street Manager Bethany Browning was hired in 2009. Each year, Main Street America and its partners announce the list of accredited programs to recognize their exceptional commitment to preservation-based economic development and community revitalization.

Evaluation criteria determines the communities that are building meaningful and sustainable revitalization programs and include standards such as fostering strong public-private partnerships, supporting small and locally owned businesses, and actively preserving historic places, spaces, and cultural assets.

This accreditation means that Rockwall has an exemplary Main Street program, as evidenced by partnerships with organizations such as the Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Rockwall Association, responsible for many of the annual events on the Square, and the Friends of Downtown Rockwall, which runs the Rockwall Farmers Market.

Rockwall’s Historic Downtown District supports thriving small, local businesses and continues to truly be the backbone of the City. Since 2009, along with its partners, Rockwall Main Street has developed and expanded a whole host of special events, including the San Jacinto Plaza Music Series, Scare on the Square, Hometown Christmas, and Rockwall Farmers Market. These annual events generate excitement and draw patrons to downtown restaurants and businesses, as well as nurture the small town culture which makes Rockwall so attractive.
