It’s high time historic downtown Rogers had a blog of the caliber of some of our sister cities. My dear friend Heidi Demarais launched The Word on Main Street (https://mainstreetsiloamsprings.blogspot.com/) in March 2009, and I’ve long been wanting to do the same for Rogers.
A number of important business entities do a fine job of being the source for the community and outstanding resources for downtown Rogers – that’s not the point of this blog. Main Street Rogers (https://www.mainstreetrogers.com/ or 479-936-5487) is the official organization for downtown businesses, events and activities, and the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce has an outstanding business directory on its website (https://www.rogerslowell.com/ or 479-636-1240). Those are the very best sources for official information, along with the City of Rogers (https://www.rogersarkansas.com/ or 479-621-1117).
However, if you care about the vibe of downtown Rogers, the word among downtown residents, the freshness of the Farmers’ Market or the reason so many people are starting to understand that it’s a very special place to live, raise a family, open a business or visit for something a little unique and off the main roads, this is the place for you.
