"Help Preserve Downtown"

Newsletter




Up Coming Events



Welcome to the Historic Downtown Sikeston website. Here you will find all the information you need to become acquainted (or reacquainted) with the historic part of Sikeston, get updates on events and activities, and learn of our restoration plans. Downtown is the heart of the community and it is our goal to keep it a thriving retail and business district.
Among others, the advantages to downtown development include:
  • increasing the tax base for the city
  • increasing tourism and visitor dollars
  • protecting and preserving historic buildings for future generations to enjoy
The mission of Historic Downtown Sikeston (HMDG) is to enhance the economic and cultural vibrancy of Downtown Sikeston, as well as its historic identity. Using consensus-based comprehensive planning and the Main Street Four Point Approach of organization, economic development, promotion, and design, HMDG will address the downtown area's problems and opportunities, making Downtown Sikeston an attractive place to live, work, visit, shop, and invest.

Historic Downtown Sikeston (HMDG) meets on the 1st Thursday of each month, 9:00 a.m. at Susie's Bake Shoppe, on Center St. in Beautiful Historic Downtown Sikeston. Anyone interested in the commerce and restoration of Downtown Sikeston is welcome to attend. The meetings last approximately one hour.
