The Texas Main Street Program has a large network of 90 communities! in the Lone Star State, that utilize the Main Street Approach®, help revitalize their historic downtowns, and create positive economic impact. Many communities in the Texas network have maintained their Main Street designations for years, indicating their continued prioritization of downtown and the effectiveness of Main Street as a framework for historic preservation and economic development.

In 2023, a number of programs are celebrating milestone anniversaries of 20 years or more. This includes Clarksville, Kilgore, Llano, Luling, Palestine, and Winnsboro (all 20 years); Levelland and Nacogdoches (25 years); Brenham, Grapevine, Henderson, Mount Pleasant, and Paris (all 30 years); and Gonzales and Plainview (35 years).
Like the state itself, the communities that participate in the Texas Main Street network are diverse in many ways. They range from some of the very smallest communities (Granger, Goliad, Linden, and San Augustine) to large urban communities (Georgetown, Conroe, McKinney, and San Marcos) in Texas. Regardless of size, Main Street communities have one thing in common: they recognize that downtown matters.
