We invite you will take advantage of what we have to offer and to explore Downtown Mt. Vernon.
Downtown Mt. Vernon is the historical heart of the community located in Southern Illinois at the crossroads of I-64 and I-57. It is a viable, mixed-use community with restaurants, stores, bars, historical sites, professional offices and more. The Downtown Mt. Vernon Development Corporation (DMDC) is the steward of the downtown district.
We hope you will visit our Downtown District and see why we are so proud of our community.

In keeping with our vision to revitalize and maintain downtown as an attractive and viably active hub of the community, DMDC retains a current list of downtown properties for sale or lease. We invite you to locate your business in the traditional commercial center of Mt. Vernon by contacting the corresponding person or representative on the available property list. You may also contact the DMDC office at 242-6866 for more information about our downtown district.
Our District is experiencing the beginning of a renaissance – new building investments, community events, a strong participatory management association, a drive to restore the historic Granada Theater, and a growing public recognition of the District’s importance to its community. Read More
