"Help Preserve Downtown"

The Historic Midtown Development Group, a 501c3 non-profit organization doing business as Historic Downtown Sikeston, was established with the assistance of community-minded individuals, the downtown merchants and the Sikeston Area Chamber of Commerce. This group is made up of many caring and concerned citizens who wish to make Downtown Sikeston the thriving business district that it once was in its prime, by preserving the historic integrity of existing buildings, planning future development to complement existing structures and preserving Sikeston's downtown heritage for future generations to enjoy.

Future restoration projects include the installation of period lighting, resurfacing of parking lots and sidewalks, restoration of building facades and other landscaping and beautification projects.

If you would like to get involved in this effort please e-mail or call 573.380.3801. Historic Downtown Sikeston meets on the first Thursday of each month at 8:00 AM at Susie's Bake Shoppe & Restaurant.
