In late 2012, Pendleton received the designation of a Main Street Community from the State of Indiana. The mission of Main Street Pendleton is to encourage revitalization and restoration in downtown Pendleton to result in a positive, sustainable change for the community. Our goals are to:

  • determine, delineate, and promote the area known as "Main Street Pendleton" that includes the area zoned for downtown business.
  • encourage building and business owners to participate in activities and opportunities occurring under the Main Street Pendleton designation.
  • be a local resource for owners.
  • help the town of Pendleton maintain and improve the Main Street area.

The State of Indiana has been coordinating Main Street programs since 1985 and awards the distinction to individual communities wishing to preserve the integrity and atmosphere of their downtown area. The tenets of the Main Street are focused on organization, design, promotion, and business development in Pendleton.
