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.


The Hamilton Historic Main Street program preserves and enhances Hamilton’s history and historic architecture to be an inviting destination for small businesses, residents, and tourists to eat, play, shop, and explore.


We will utilize the Main Street principles of Organization, Promotion, Design, and Economic Development to preserve Hamilton’s small-town charm, promote our businesses and attractions, and encourage small business growth in our community.


Thank you Hamiltonians for taking this year’s survey! We are working to analyze the data collected from the Community and Stakeholder Surveys and will share the results when possible.
