To complete the Manning commercial district’s application to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places, Meleney meticulously researched and compiled historical and architectural information for 60 structures. Manning went on to use the information to create a downtown walking tour brochure. “Janet Meleney is a wonderful example of the importance of volunteers to the success that a Main Street program can bring to cities and towns in South Carolina,” said Main Street South Carolina Manager Beppie LeGrand. Main Street South Carolina empowers residents, business owners and local officials with the knowledge, skills, tools and organizational structure necessary to revitalize their downtowns, neighborhood commercial districts and cities and towns into vibrant centers of commerce and community. Main Street South Carolina follows the National Main Street’s Four Point Approach – Organization, Promotion, Design and Economic Restructuring. Each year, Main Street South Carolina recognizes members’ achievements and successes in downtown revitalization. A video showcasing the award is available here.
