The City of Marietta, Oklahoma recently approved the creation of the city’s first Main Street revitalization committee.
Its goal is improving downtown to draw businesses and tourists to Love County.
“Marietta has a lot to offer,” said Kendra Tucker, who owns Marietta Abstract Company. “It’s a really charming town, and the downtown is no longer reflective, I think, of the people here and the values they have.”
The revamp of Main Street has also drawn motivation from other Texoma towns.
“I had worked in Ardmore for about 17 years and saw the difference that those initiatives made and how it totally revitalized the downtown area,” Tucker said. “It made it a totally different place.”
