About Us


MainStreet Libertyville, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to the economic development and historic preservation of Libertyville's historic downtown. We are affiliates of the Illinois Main Street and National Main Street programs.

Over the past 25 years our membership and volunteer base has grown to include hundreds of people a lot like you. As a volunteer for MainStreet, you can join your neighbors in helping to regain the vitality of our historic downtown.

It's amazing what we can do together! Building facades are being returned to their original glory, thousands enjoy our events, and new stores are coming to the district--all through the dedication of everyday people!


"The purpose of the MainStreet Libertyville program is to enhance our community identity and heritage, to foster a center of activity, and to ensure economic stability in the heart of Libertyville through concentrated efforts of education, design, promotion, organization, and economic revitalization."
