National Trust names award-winning Main Streets

Cape Girardeau, Mo.
As commercial centers and social hubs, the best Main Streets can unify a town or city and draw visitors, Ben Abramson writes for USA Today. Every year, the National Trust for Historic Preservation chooses winners for its Great American Main Street contest. The award-winners for 2015 are Cape Girardeau, Mo.; Montaclair Center, N.J.; and Rawlins, Wyo. Fond du Lac, Wis., was named the "one to watch."

Winners were cited for "a great convergence of old and new," as "historic commercial buildings are being repurposed to house the arts, high-tech businesses and entrepreneurs," said Patrice Frey of the National Main Street Center in a statement, Abramson writes.
