Rediscover Martinsville

Rediscover Martinsville, Inc., is a volunteer driven, nonprofit organization bolstering the local economy through ongoing revitalization and promotion of Martinsville’s historic downtown district. Established in 2008, Rediscover Martinsville is been a proud member of the growing network of Indiana Main Street communities.

Martinsville's Downtown District is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the most intact historic downtowns in the state of Indiana, with the majority of the structures dating to the pre-Civil War era. 

Downtown Martinsville has undergone extensive renovation and revitalization in the past several years, thanks to locally based private investors. The downtown square is now home to a multitude of independent, locally owned shops, eateries and other businesses, as well as fun events throughout the year, including Cruise-In on the Square, Artie Fest, the Martinsville Cookie Stroll, the Bobby Helms Jingle Bell Rock Christmas Spectacular and a free summer concert series. 

We invite you to come Rediscover Martinsville, Indiana. 



Enhance the perception, quality of life, and long-term economic growth of the entire Martinsville Community through a concentrated and sustained effort to revitalize the city's downtown district. 


​The efforts of Rediscover Martinsville in Downtown Martinsville will result in measurable economic development based on the following: An increase in the number of rehabilitated buildings, fewer unoccupied buildings, a greater diversity of business offerings, the enhanced physical appearance of public areas including sidewalks, streets, and alleys, and a greater collective sense of responsibility for our downtown. 


The City of Martinsville serves as the county seat and is home to a largely pre-Civil War downtown commercial district.
