Downtown Blackstone Inc. (DBI) is a nonprofit organization established in 2007 to revitalize the Town of Blackstone's historic business district. DBI is an accredited Virginia Main Street Program. 

DBI is committed to strengthening the existing businesses in Historic Downtown Blackstone; we are also focused on recruiting and attracting businesses that complement the existing businesses. We work closely with local government and business and property owners to establish a clear vision for the town and its residents.

The Main Street program directly benefits a locality in a variety of ways.  As businesses are successful and grow, downtown thrives and the community-at-large in turn benefits with more goods and services available to them, job creation, as well as with enhanced opportunities for community programming that a healthy downtown area naturally promotes, such as concerts and festivals and a better quality of life.  Click here for a look at the work that was done to get us where we are today.

You might be wondering what our efforts have yielded beyond a facelift of buildings so let's cut to the chase and have a look at some bottom line numbers: Here is what we have accomplished.
