Main Street Laurens
Main Street Laurens is a public/private partnership formed in 1996 to ensure the continual growth and prosperity of downtown Laurens. MSL is an [Accredited Main Street America](http://www.mainstreet.org/main-street/about-main-street/main-street-america/the-movement.html) program and a Second Tier [Main Street South Carolina](http://www.masc.sc/programs/knowledge/Pages/Main-Street-SC.aspx) program. The preservation work is accomplished using the [Main Street America Refreshed Four Point Approach](http://www.mainstreet.org/main-street/about-main-street/main-street-america/the-main-street-approach.html) which is a comprehensive revitalization strategy that pairs thoughtful historic preservation with sensible business assets. We blend common sense with (1) sound planning/membership, (2) economic enhancement, (3) promotion, and (4) design to rebuild the life of downtown Laurens.
