Main Street se focaliza en la reactivación comercial del centro de la ciudad basado en la preservación histórica. Esa es la presentación profesional breve, pero Main Street es mucho más. Estamos interesados en la preservación de nuestros edificios comerciales históricos, y ayudamos a los dueños de comercios locales en esos edificios para que tengan éxito y brinden trabajos e ingresos para los habitantes de Oklahoma y a lo largo de nuestro gran estado.
