Hamilton Historic Main Street

What is Main Street?

The Texas Historical Commission (THC) designated Hamilton as an official Texas Main Street community in 2020. The Texas Main Street program is part of the Community Heritage Development Division of the THC, and focuses on the Four Point Approach of organization, economic development, design, and promotion with community involvement and volunteer support.

Four Point Approach in Action

Please see each tab below for an explanation of how our advisory board has tackled each approach this year and current successes. Due to the pandemic, we have not yet had committee meetings open to community volunteers, but hope to very soon. All community members are welcome to join. If interested, please email the Main Street Manager at mainstreet@hamiltontexas.com or call 254-784-5610.

  1. Design
  2. Economic Vitality
  3. Organization
  4. Promotion

Our Design Committee is led by Advisory Board Kim Cooper and Chrissy Lane, along with Ex Officio members Sarah Bauman and Kim Hinton.

The focus is to help preserve and enhance the physical elements within our Main Street District. 

Some of our successful projects this year have included completing an inventory of all properties within the Main Street District and creating a Hamilton webpage within DowntownTX.org, a Texas Main Street website. We have also been working with local property owners and Texas Main Street on planning building rehabilitation and beautification projects.

Property owners in the district can benefit from the Texas Main Street Design Assistance. To participate, please complete the attached form and send to the Main Street Manager to receive recommendations for your building's rehabilitation where you can learn the history and unique architectural details of your building that can be showcased to suit your budget.
