ARDMORE, OK -- Downtown Ardmore businesses cleaned house at Oklahoma’s annual Main Street Awards on Thursday given by the Department of Commerce and National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The awards recognize businesses and building owners for their part in renovating and preserving historic downtown areas. Over 250 applicants from around the state were nominated for awards in nineteen categories.

The Main Street Wine Depot won the state’s "Best Interior Design," joining Ardmore’s Maria Wilkinson as "Board Member of the Year" and "A Fantasy in Chocolate" for crowning achievement in fundraising.

"If these walls could talk, and I wish they could, they'd have a lot to say about the history of this building. We practically had to take it from the ground up," Jadean Fackrell at the Main Street Wine Depot says.

Linda Barnett, director of the Oklahoma Main Street Program, says Ardmore’s Main Street is one of the best the Sooner State has to offer.

"Ardmore has been one of our best participating cities. They are people that we like to say who 'get it.' They really have done a fantastic job with their downtown."
