The Downtown Henderson Partnership (DHP) started in 1986 with the help of the National Main Street program and the Kentucky Main Street Program. The mission of the organization is to promote, improve and preserve the unique character and economic vitality of Downtown Henderson. In April of 2022, the DHP reorganized to join the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. With this reorganization, the DHP became a division of the Chamber alongside its existing pillars of Workforce/Education/DE&I, Agriculture, Government Affairs and Membership. Some members of the past Downtown Henderson Partnership Board of Directors joined the Chamber’s newly-formed Downtown Committee, and others have taken seats on the Board of Directors to ensure continued synergy of the two organizations’ efforts.
