Our goal is to create a community of complimentary, specialty type businesses that
can grow from and support each other..
We provide tax credit information, business start-up assistance and a pathway to available property listings and contacts for certain state agencies such as the State Historic Preservation Society and NC Main Street Office.
When the board or business/property owners feel change is in order, the DDC initiates that change through proper channels representing the changing needs of the downtown district as a whole.
We provide these grants as a tool to encourage development of our historic structures. Grants are reviewed and approved by the Board in order to ensure as much consistency with design and coloration as possible. The grants are used for exterior front, rear and side facades, parking lot improvements, electrical reception transfer to the rear of buildings or for awnings and signage. Grant funds are paid upon receipt of paid invoices from the applicant. Grants funds are based on budgetary availability.
Special Events, cooperative newspaper ads, brochures about downtown, online marketing,
local business displays, presentations to local civic organizations and clubs, and appearance
on local radio and TV are all ways the DDC promotes functions, special downtown projects,
and information about Downtown Henderson as a whole.

If location is everything, Henderson has it — bragging rights, for one, to spectacular real estate and recreation on Kerr Lake (one of the largest reservoirs in the Southeastern United States, covering approximately 50,000 acres and bordered by over 850 miles of shoreline).
It's historic downtown (since 1841) is experiencing a revitalization, spurred by last year's opening of the 1000-seat McGregor Hall Performing Arts Center. Take a look around and notice not only the existing shopping, dining and worship choices, but also the retail and residential development opportunities available to the savvy investor.
