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. Hamilton Historic Main Street is among the national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities that share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. 

Hamilton Historic Main Street falls under the Economic Development Corporation and is supported by a working advisory board and a team of volunteers. We work closely with business and property owners, governments, residents and volunteers to focus on projects that encourage the ongoing revitalization of downtown Hamilton.

Our Design Committee is led by Advisory Board  Kim Cooper.

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. Recently, we have added 6 new light poles and banners to Bell and Henry Street and re potted the flower pots with vibrant flowers for the Summer time. 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.
