About the EDA

We are a grassroots local non-profit working to preserve and revitalize Ellensburg’s historic Downtown using the National Main Street Center’s 4-Point Main Street approach.

This comprehensive preservation based approach to community revitalization emphasizes efforts in each of the four points — design, organization, promotion, and economic restructuring.

The Ellensburg Downtown Association formed in 2004 and is a Washington State designated, nationally accredited Main Street program.
