Building a Better Main Street in Historic Reisterstown

Main Street Banners Welcome Motorists

Thanks to our generous sponsors, it's a banner year on Reisterstown's Main Street as we encourage commuters to Stop, Shop, Stroll and Dine.

Every day, thousands of commuters drive through Main Street as a short cut to some other destination.

Now, thanks to the generosity of Reisterstown residents, business leaders, public servants and community organizations, we're encouraging drivers to stop, shop, stroll and dine along this historic route. 

"We are so delighted with the community support we received for the project," said Irwin Kramer, Chairman of RIA's Design Committee, which held a statewide competition for the design of a bold banner that would promote what Reisterstown has to offer. "Those of us who live and work along Main Street already know what a special place Reisterstown is. Now, it's time to let busy commuters know what they're passing by."

Promoting a "Proud Past," Reisterstown promises a "Bright Future" to those passing by. With a wide array of shops, restaurants, and other attractive amenities, RIA President Herb Weiss considers Reisterstown "a great destination -- not merely a route to other places. Like the quaint towns of yesteryear, a stroll along Main Street offers something for everyone, at any age and in any season."

And a stroll down Reisterstown displays banners that provide a Walk of Fame for many of Main Street's most ardent supporters, including:
