Mayor H.L. Beam: Cherryville

2023 NC Main Street Champion

Downtown Cherryville has blossomed in the last decade; its gleaming new streetscape beckoning visitors. Old buildings are transforming, new businesses are popping up, and no one is more responsible for this success than Cherryville’s Mayor H.L. Beam. Through change and challenges, H.L. is a trusted voice, and never stops advocating for his beloved hometown. He is always there – in forums large and small – advocating for the city’s bright future. H.L.’s passionate advocacy and steady leadership united Cherryville’s leaders and her citizens through challenging times.

Together, they helped merchants weather the Covid-19 pandemic and together also passed a multi­ million­ dollar bond issue for revitalization. They kept downtown alive during 17 months of construction and revitalization of Main Street. And, last year, together, they celebrated the grand opening of Cherryville’s beautiful new Main Street.

The Cherryville Main Street Program proudly honors Mayor H.L. Beam as its 2023 North Carolina Main Street Champion.
