JACKSON, Tenn. — Two West Tennessee towns have been certified as Tennessee Main Street communities by the state. The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development announced Wednesday that Bolivar and McKenzie achieved the certification. The towns join 28 other Tennessee Main Street communities certified through the state’s downtown revitalization program and accredited by the National Main Street Center, an affiliate of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, according to a release from the state. “Although new to Main Street, Bolivar has long been part of Courthouse Square revitalization efforts with outstanding natural and historic resources, and McKenzie is a successful graduate of TNECD‘s Tennessee Downtowns program with a plan for their future,” Tennessee Main Street Program Director Nancy Williams states in the release. Sevierville in East Tennessee also was honored with the designation.
