Downtown Ruston is the heart of the City. Ruston is a Louisiana Historic District and one of only 34 Louisiana Main Street Communities.
As a Main Street America Affiliate™, Ruston Main Street is part of a national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities who share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development.
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.
Ruston Main Street is home to an active group of business owners who are engaged with the community. They hold monthly Meet Me On Main Street meetings to discuss the continued development of Downtown Ruston.
