Downtown Mebane Streetscape.jpg


Historic Downtown Mebane, one of the fastest growing municipalities in North Carolina, is the hub for regional leisurely and recreational activities.

Downtown serves as the center for community engagement and is rich with diverse small businesses, nightlife, and dining options for a positively charming experience.


The mission of the Downtown Mebane Development Corporation is to facilitate the revitalization and preservation of historic Downtown Mebane through an inclusive collaboration and partnership with greater Mebane.


Everyone can be a part of “Main Street.” We are the champions of our downtown – preserving and promoting its history, creating new experiences for residents and visitors, and planning for the future to ensure that downtown continues to be THE place to be for our next generations.

We’ll be sharing more details about how to get involved, so stay tuned!



This year was our first year as an organized Main Street Program. It was a year of setting goals, gathering feedback from residents and businesses and developing a plan of work for envisioning the future of downtown Mebane. We put in a lot of work and achieved many of the goals we set for 2023, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Join us in celebrating all the hard work that went into 2023. A big thank you to our board and community volunteers who made this all possible.


We are proud of our city and everything we have accomplished together. We are always in need of volunteers who share our vision and want to help us make Mebane an even better place to live, work, and play. With opportunities for business recruitment, event planning, trail development, fundraising and more, there is sure to be something that interests you. Become a part of our community today and discover how you can make a difference.
