Texas Main Street

The Texas Historical Commission has named its entering 2015 designated Main Street communities. Welcome aboard ENNIS and ROSENBERG!

The national Main Street revitalization effort for historic downtowns was formed more than 30 years ago and there has been a statewide Texas Program since that time operating through the Texas Historical Commission. The Texas Main Street Program (TMSP) is one of the oldest and largest in the nation, with more than 80 fully designated communities.

The TMSP is part of the Community Heritage Development Division of the Texas Historical Commission and operates in affiliation with the National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In 1981, following a pilot project of the national center that studied ways to address the decline of America's downtowns, the TMSP became one of the first six statewide coordinating programs in the nation.
