Historic downtown Cambridge has been the crossroads of transportation since 1806 in the heart of Appalachian Ohio. During it's time the downtown has seen pottery and glass plants, horses and buggies to trolleys, the National Road change our landscape and store front facades including our hidden store fronts dating back to the 1840's buried under the street. William Lawrence Boyd, also known as Hopalong Cassidy, Dom Capers, Lisa Howard and John Glenn have all called Cambridge home. Our popular courthouse light show continues to attract thousands of visitors every year and has even expanded into the Halloween season. Cambridge Main Street has dedicated fifteen years to preserving our past and is proud to brag our downtown has been named a Hallmark Christmas movie worthy hometown, has been named the Best Hometown by Ohio Magazine and has received countless other nods and nominations. If chosen Cambridge Main Street will use the $25,000 to assist building and small business owners to be a continued part in the history of the community. Grants will be provided to our local small business and building owners to make necessary improvements to their buildings, for staff training or store upgrades. Funds will be donated to ensure the continuation of our every popular courthouse light show. Funds will also be provided to the underground store fronts so that this unique part of our past is preserved for future generations. The work of Cambridge Main Street ensures others will be able to make their own memories on Main Street and that our past is an integral part of the city's future.
