Pearl was officially designated a Mississippi Main Street Association city on Thursday, April 8. Main Street Pearl will be led by Mrs. Ruth Gullette.

“As the director for Main Street Pearl, I am most excited about the historic preservation aspect of our future transformation,” said Ruth Gullette, Director of Main Street Pearl. “I know the experts from Mississippi Main Street Association will be able to guide us in a way that will help revitalize an area that was once considered the ‘Heart of Pearl,’ while stimulating our economy and preserving our history.”

Exciting times are ahead as the city works to develop a true downtown “Main Street” district.
