A Designated Texas Main Street City

Caldwell was designated a Texas Main Street City in January 2014, taking its place alongside 89 other communities across Texas.  The Main Street mission is to both embrace and energize Caldwell’s beloved, historic downtown district.  The downtown area has numerous retail shops and boutiques, restaurants, wine bars and antique stores.  Visit our downtown and eat, drink and play your way around the town square.

We are proud to announce that the Caldwell Main Street Program received National Accreditation for its performance in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Mission Statement:  The Caldwell Main Street Program will progress the Main Street Vision through the use of the National Main Street Four Point Approach.  The Board will man and oversee committees dedicated to Organization, Design, Promotion and Economic Restructuring.  The Board will establish a strong volunteer base, restoring and maintaining the historical integrity of the Main Street area, promoting the Main Street Area to both internal and external audiences and aggressively engaging in the recruitment and retention of retail entities in keeping with the Plan of Work established by the Main Street Advisory Board.

Core Values:  The Caldwell Main Street Program seeks to promote a passion for preserving our cultural heritage through education and knowledge.  Promoting a sense of pride in what our community is and a vision for what it can become.  A core tenet of the program is respect for every individual and their right to a voice in the future of our community.  Board members of the program seek to lead and teach by example making all interactions with each other and the community honest and trustworthy.  Business decisions will be made with consideration of the best outcome for the most people and never for personal gain.
