Haymarket businesses and property owners, along with community leaders formed LHDC in 1985 as a non-profit organization. LHDC was primarily formed in order to apply for participation in the National Main Street Program which is a revitalization program administered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Haymarket was selected as one of nine sites in the nation that year as a district qualifying as a Main Street Program site. This led the District and LHDC to the development of a broad-based revitalization plan, done under the direction of the National Main Street Center. LHDC also formulated a plan to financially implement the program over a long period of time.
