In the center of a “triangle of opportunity” (Omaha, Nebraska; Kansas City, Missouri; and Des Moines, Iowa) you can work, raise a family, or retire in a beautiful, rural setting while having 3 Metros within a 1 ½ to 2-hour drive with malls, theater, and airports that reach the world.

The creative energy and great leadership of the community bring experiences beyond expectations. Peruse this website or visit one of our three Facebook pages to learn more.

“In big cities, you just never get out and know your neighbors, and here you do. The community does so much in terms of development and to keep it alive. It doesn’t feel like a small place. There are just so many opportunities here.”

Dr. Ashley Neils

Dr. Neils moved to Corning, the county seat community, first in a temporary role with Catholic Health Initiatives Mercy Corning before deciding on a permanent career and family move to the area.

Vendors Wanted!!
We are so excited to be preparing for July 27th Market in The Park here in Corning! Our Main Street Corning promotions committee is planning one heck of a weekend for all to enjoy and this should bring the crowds to town during Lazy Days and Battle of the BBQ weekend while shoppers enjoy your booths at Market in The Park!

We have the fall date set for September 14th which will be Homecoming weekend along with the Car Show as well!

Registration for this year, the vendor fee is $30 per event, however once you show up to your booth spot the morning of the show you will get $15 of that back in Chamber Bucks. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants, shops, and even the grocery store where those bucks can be used, so stop by on your way out of town or come back and spend them another day!

Here is the registration link for both dates. forms.gle/23dHyxJvpZN3Y87s7

We would love to have you! Let me know if you are interested or have any questions! Thanks!

✨Main Street Monday✨
💥Featuring💥
👨‍🔧Damewood Auto Repair👨‍🔧

Did you know that Corning has several service businesses located in the Main Street District? There's a small auto shop nestled on the corner of Adams and Sixth Street. Damewood Auto, owned by Broc Damewood and with auto sales run by Travis Troutwine, has been in business since 2002 and moved to this corner location in 2022. Damewood is a full-service mechanic shop that offers engine repair, transmission work, oil changes, tire rotations and replacements, brake replacements, and any other service your vehicle may need. They also offer pick-up services. In 2021, Damewood's added a new auto sale to its list of offerings.

Damewood Auto repair is running a special: if you buy four oil changes, you'll get the fifth one for free. They're open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. When asked why they love being part of Main Street, they said, "We love that we are walking distance to a lot of other stores and shops, so when you are getting your vehicle serviced, there is always something for you to do while you are waiting." They ended with the quote: "Repair, Revive, Repeat." If you ever find yourself in need of an auto shop, give Damewood Auto Repair a call where you will not only be met by Travis and Broc but by their Old English Sheepdog named Briggs.
