Lower Main Street Historic District

From the day trip trip Detour from Dia:Beacon to Main Street

Beacon's attractive Lower Main Street Historic District was added to the National Register in 1987 and covers the first few blocks of Main Street, a 10-minute walk from the train station (20 minutes from Dia). The bulk of the buildings here are late 19th-century Italianate style, and many now house darling shops and galleries. Drop by the new Clay, Wood & Cotton (149 Main Street) for handmade textiles and wooden bookmarks; Hudson Beach Glass (pictured; 162 Main Street) for colorful glass sculptures and jewelry created in a neighboring glass-blowing studio; Relic (174 Main Street) for mid-century design at a fraction of New York city prices; and Artisan Wine Shop (180 Main Street), for free wine tastings from 3–6pm every Saturday.
