Middletown Main Street Inc. is a non-profit organization working with the community to revitalize the downtown district into a thriving cultural and retail destination while maintaining its historic character.

Downtown is important because it’s the heart and soul of any community. If you don’t have a healthy downtown, you simply don’t have a healthy town.
