Local Main Street programs focus on responsibly utilizing a community’s historic assets in its downtown for economic benefit and increased quality of life. Over those four decades, 180 communities have been accepted in the state program. There are currently 89 designated communities in Texas. Main Street communities are selected through an application process. Additional information can be found on the THC website at https://www.thc.texas.gov/mainstreet.
