Merry Merry, Everyone. Hugs All Around and Thanks for Meeting Me on Main Street This Year
Since Main Street readers are all busy celebrating Advent and preparing for Christmas, there will be little time for reading blogs. Main Street will return in January 2020. However, the new Facebook Page with the same name will continue to post short pieces. Here is a sample of what the Facebook page is about. Please like and follow. I think you will enjoy learning the language of Main Street.

Learning the language of Main Street – Historic Storefront Types. A walk down Main Street will bring to life these sketches you will find below. FYI: the ground level of many historic commercial buildings features a storefront area. In most cases, the storefront is an important defining feature in most historic commercial districts. Preserving significant historic storefronts and restoring altered or missing storefront features are important to preservation goals. These sketches assist with the interpretation of design guidelines for historic commercial buildings.
SFH: I love learning things like this, I hope you do too. I guarantee it will make your appreciation for Main Street Rocky Mount soar. We can have the most beautiful Main Street and surrounds in North Carolina. We have so many commercial buildings with their great facades. With all the great things going on, Saving Main Street can still be a top priority. Fall in love again with the architecture of this place, both commercial and residential. Becoming aware of the architectural elements of these buildings will reawaken your appreciation for what we’ve got. Remember the line from the song??? We must make sure we don’t tear down paradise and put up a parking lot.
