About Main Street

New Main Street LogoLocated just east of metropolitan Memphis, nestled in the Heart of Tennessee's Delta, historic Collierville offers a unique blend of millennium technology flavored with vintage memories and sentimental tradition. Collierville was designed as a Main Street community in 1991, and its volunteer Board of Directors continues to be dedicated to the preservation of the historic district, the heart of downtown Collierville.

A part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Main Street Collierville vision is "to improve the quality of life by strengthening the historic district as the center of the community through concentrated efforts in organization, promotion, design and economic restructuring with a historic preservation ethic.

Main Street Collierville is a non-profit, tax exempt 501 (c) (3) organization, that works diligently through its membership to track the ties that bind the heritage of the community. A year-round calendar of events and historic happenings continue to forge the link between past and present small town charm and the sophistication of urban growth.


The Mission of Main Street Collierville is to preserve and enhance the Town Square Area as the Heart of Collierville; That communicates a sense of community pride, heritage, and small town wholesomeness; and provides for a successful community.


Main Street Collierville believes that if a community preserves the integrity of its heritage, that heritage will in turn preserve the integrity of the community.
