A fresh fit. Where family is tradition, and visitors welcomed like family.
In 1984, the Greater Hammonton Chamber of Commerce established a sub-committee called the Hammonton Revitalization Corporation (HRC), a 501 C non-profit organization, to address the dilapidated conditions of Downtown Hammonton. The HRC, along with town leaders, applied to become a Main Street program in 1992. On June 3, 1993, Hammonton officially became a Main Street New Jersey program.


MainStreet Hammonton uses the unique economic development tool, the Main Street Four Point Approach. This approach is implemented by the efforts of four committees: Outreach, Promotion, Design and Economic Vitality.
