What We Do

Main Street Skowhegan (MSS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on the ongoing revitalization of Skowhegan, Maine. Founded in 2005 by a group of citizens with the goal of reinvigorating downtown Skowhegan, MSS is now driven by three staff members and dozens of volunteers working to make their town a better place.

In 2015 we expanded our purview to include the entire town—not just the downtown—enabling us to serve all Skowhegan businesses and implement town-wide projects.

Our mission is to grow a vibrant and inviting historic town by encouraging innovation and economic development. We spearhead collaborative efforts to support businesses and diversify the economy, stimulate tourism, and tell Skowhegan’s story.

In 2015-16 we led a community-wide effort to craft the Skowhegan Strategic Plan for Community Transformation. The plan’s ultimate goal is to make Skowhegan a thriving economic, cultural, and recreational destination where residents enjoy a high quality of life. We are now facilitating plan implementation and tackling many of the action steps. You can help us implement the plan by making a donation today:
