Ruston Main Street is the economic engine and core of our community.  It is where residents and visitors alike come together for fun and fellowship.  It is the thriving core of our community with unique shopping, great restaurants, and beautifully restored buildings.  Downtown Ruston, and specifically Railroad Park, is host to a number of activities and events.
