It’s home to robust industries, homegrown businesses, professionals and service providers, government offices, social service agencies, educational opportunities, restaurants, entertainment and more.
And Historic Downtown Frankfort is at the heart of it all.
Industry, government, business and individuals all benefit from a healthy local economy and from the preservation of our historic central business district. It is this core of our community that reflects our heritage and our personality as a population center, that showcases our past and forecasts our future.
Since 1985, Frankfort Main Street, Inc., has been the dedicated curator of Downtown Frankfort. As such, we conduct a year-round promotional calendar that includes a combination of retail sales promotions, special events and opportunities for the community to experience Historic Downtown Frankfort.
Collectively, these activities foster a successful environment for business recruitment and retention, while cultivating a district that is inviting to both residents and visitors to Clinton County.
A year-round promotional calendar has been a strong component of Frankfort Main Street's efforts since its formation. While Frankfort Main Street is partially funded through a grant from the City of Frankfort, all promotions, marketing, initiatives and special community events are covered through investments made by individuals, businesses and organizations committed to improving the quality of life in our community. Such investments support a plethora of volunteer time, skill and effort.
Frankfort Main Street, Inc. is a 501c3 organization and all dollars invested in its partnership opportunities are tax deductible.
