welcome to cleveland, ms.

Thanks for stopping by our neck of the woods to learn more about Cleveland, Mississippi, located smack-dab in the Mississippi Delta! Centrally located in Bolivar County, we're twenty minutes from the Mighty Mississippi River and conveniently situated for a road trip down America's Blues Highway--Highway 61.


We here at Team Cleveland Main Street want you to mosey on by for a visit to our phenomenal downtown. The central Crosstie Walking Trail features a gorgeously manicured greenway that stretches for a mile loop. You'll pass by surprising stand-outs like the Martin and Sue King Railroad Heritage Museum, home to the largest O-gauge model train in the Southeast; and the towering Cotton House Hotel, a boutique Marriot property with an in-house James-Beard award winning chef. And that's only a few of our downtown gems.

Victorian lampposts, artfully accented windows, and carefully maintained greenery line the central streets of Cotton Row and Sharpe Avenue, home to some of the best boutique shopping in the south! Other fun finds are staggered about North Street, our Hwy 61 corridor, and Court Street, our pathway to Delta State University--home to American's fiercest vegetable mascot!

Team Cleveland Main Street Facade grant applications open

Team Cleveland Main Street is excited to announce the 2022 round of facade grant applications for downtown Cleveland!  Due to price increases in supplies and labor, Team Cleveland has doubled the award amount of facade grants from $500 to $1,000, but will retain the 1:1 dollar-for-dollar match award structure.

To apply for the award, you must be a current Team Cleveland Main Street member in good standing with a storefront located in the Crosstie Historic District (please see the linked map to determine if your storefront is located within the historic district boundaries). All proposed changes must adhere to the updated 2021 Crosstie Historic District Guidelines. All changes must be approved by the City of Cleveland Heritage Commission.

Please note that most changes to historic facades require approval from the Heritage Commission, which requires the submission of a Certificate of Appropriateness to the Commission members. To limit the amount of paperwork in the granting process, please note a copy of the certificate of appropriateness can be substituted in place of the Team Cleveland Grant application once approved by the Heritage Commission. To request a copy of the grant application, call the Team Cleveland offices at 662-441-1659. 

Small Town. BIG Vibe.
