About Main Street
Our Vision is for Guthrie to be a thriving community that surrounds a vibrant, functional and historic downtown.
Our Mission is to focus on preserving the historic fabric and enhancing the charm of community ~ while encouraging economic growth and fostering a cooperative spirit in a unique place to visit…..and a great place to call home.
A Place to Call Home
The commercial district of Guthrie reflects the image of the entire community and plays a key role in the local economy. For these reasons, every resident has a vested interest in our downtown’s future.
The success of Guthrie Partners depends on the participation of the entire community. Whether it is volunteering on a committee, helping to organize special events, shopping local or simply attending Main Street activities, you can make the dream of a revitalized downtown a reality.
Guthrie Partners for Main Street is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that is dedicated to the revitalization of downtown Guthrie. Since the inception of Guthrie’s Main Street program $1,793,960 has been invested into our historic downtown through grants. Projects include the Guthrie Transportation Museum & Welcome Center, Guthrie’s Streetscape Project and a successful nomination of downtown Guthrie as a Historic District on the National Register.
Guthrie Partners is a certified Main Street© program through the National Trust’s Main Street Center as well as the Kentucky Main Street program. Tracy Robinson, Executive Director, is a Kentucky Certified Main Street Manager and has been with Guthrie Partners for twelve years.
