New Collaborative Space Open in Downtown Christiansburg

March 4, 2020

Great Road on Main in downtown Christiansburg welcomes the Montgomery Museum, Regional Tourism office, and Downtown Christiansburg Inc. as new tenants.

The Christiansburg location of the Montgomery County VA Regional Tourism office has relocated from the Montgomery County Government Center to The Great Road on Main. The office will continue to serve visitors Monday through Friday 9am-5pm.

“We are pleased to join with our community partners to serve County residents and visitors in this synergistic space in downtown Christiansburg,” said Craig Meadows, Montgomery County Administrator and tourism board chair. “The proximity of the Great Road on Main facility to the interstate, along with the services planned for this location, will enhance the mission of the regional tourism program.”

The Montgomery Museum of Art and History will open the Museum Market on Main to include a semi-permanent Great Road exhibit and a gift shop offering products created by local artists and authors.

“The Montgomery Museum of Art and History is happy to open the Museum Market on Main in downtown Christiansburg,” said Sue Farrar, Director of the Montgomery Museum of Art and History. “We are hoping to fill a void in downtown shopping while offering a glimpse of history to the community. It is our pleasure to join the Great Road, Regional Office of Tourism, and
Downtown Christiansburg, Inc. to bring new life to Main Street Christiansburg.”

Downtown Christiansburg Inc. (DCI) will use their new space for meetings and a headquarters for their various events such as the Food Truck Rodeo and Wine and Artisans festival. The new space will help to reach the vision of DCI to establish downtown Christiansburg as a destination, an economically viable central business district, and a vibrant center for culture and community.

“We at DCI are thrilled to join our partners from Montgomery County Tourism, The Montgomery Museum, and Great Road on Main in this exciting step forward for downtown Christiansburg,” said Justin Sanders, President of Downtown Christiansburg, Inc. “The impact of having so many talented partners under one roof can’t be overstated, and provides a renewed opportunity for collaboration and innovation.  We look forward to settling into our new home and continuing to showcase downtown as a destination for our residents, business owners, and visitors”
