About

The Tryon Downtown Development Association supports historic downtown Tryon as a driver of economic and business development. TDDA is able to do this through the generous donations of our members and community, local businesses, fundraising events, support from county and local nonprofits, and assistance from the Town of Tryon. 

As a Main Street America™ Accredited program, Tryon is a recognized leading program among the national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities who share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. All Main Street America™ Accredited programs meet a set of National Accreditation Standards of Performance as outlined by the National Main Street Center.

You are invited to take an active role in our organization! Your ideas, opinions and questions are welcome. Contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you!
