Contained within this district are a variety of brick, stone, and concrete block structures which illustrate the function of the downtown area as the business center of Dothan. This section of the City began losing its importance as a commercial hub in the late 1960's when retail businesses began moving to outlying shopping centers and malls. Many buildings were vacated but efforts to preserve the historical significance of the area continue. The Main Street District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 through the efforts of the Dothan Landmarks Foundation.
