Main Street Charm welcomes you to Sauk Centre, MN, the boyhood home of Nobel Prize winning author Sinclair Lewis. Tour his boyhood home and see how this area inspired Lewis to write the novel “Main Street” in 1920. The term Original Main Street was created when the main street in Sauk Centre was recognized on the National Register of Historical Sights. Visit the Carnegie Library, a renaissance revival style on the National Register of Historic Places which also houses the Sauk Centre History Museum and Research Center.
