LaCrosse Joins Washington Main Street 

January 1

LaCrosse was one of 2 cities from around the state of Washington to become part of the Washington State Main Street Program.  The Washington State Main Street Program has been helping communities revitalize the economy, appearance, and image of their downtown commercial districts since 1984. Main Street is a comprehensive, incremental approach to revitalization built around a community's unique heritage and attributes. Using local resources and initiative, the state program helps communities develop their own strategies to stimulate long term economic growth and pride in the heart of the community- downtown.

This once bustling farming community nearly faced extinction with the mechanization of agriculture leading to fewer job opportunities in the area and State Highway 26 was re-routed to bypass town. Despite the negative media surrounding the situation, a handful of local residents with a deep passion for the community teamed up with regional organizations to find a way to breathe life back into LaCrosse, WA.
