City Of Mineola Main Street Program Recognized as 2018 Main Street America Affiliate

City of Mineola, Texas 2018 – Mineola Main Street has been designated as an affiliate Main Street AmericaTM program by the National Main Street Center. Each year, the National Main Street Center and its Coordinating Program partners announce the list of nationally recognized Main Street America affiliate programs in recognition of their commitment to achieving meaningful improvements in downtowns and commercial districts across the country using the Main Street ApproachTM.

“It is my privilege to recognize this year’s 299 Main Street America affiliate programs,” says Patrice Frey, President & CEO of the National Main Street Center. “Their commitment to helping advance strong local economies, and to being a part of a national movement of like- minded community change makers is truly powerful. Main Streets are the heart of our communities, and these Main Street America programs truly strengthen the economic, social, and cultural fabric of their entire communities.”

In 2017 alone, Main Street America programs generated $4.48 billion in local reinvestment, helped open 6,211 net new businesses, generated 30,294 net new jobs, catalyzed the rehabilitation of 8,737 historic buildings, and clocked 2.7 million volunteer hours.

The organization’s performance is annually evaluated by The Texas Main Street Program which works in partnership with the National Main Street Center to identify the local programs that are committed to comprehensive revitalization and achieving meaningful community outcomes.

Mineola Main Street Program started in 1989 and continues to be very strong within State of Texas and Wood County Community. Mineola Main Street will be celebrating in 2019, 30 years of continuing downtown development and preservation programs of their unique history to enhance the Quality of Life within the City of Mineola.

Main Street America has been helping revitalize older and historic commercial districts for more than 35 years. Today, it is a network of more than 1,000 neighborhoods and communities, rural and urban, who share both a commitment to place and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. Since 1980, communities participating in the program have leveraged more than $71.35 billion in new public and private investment, generated 583,869 net new jobs and 131,974 net new businesses, and rehabilitated more than 267,800 buildings.

Promoting Economic Development through Historic Preservation


In 1989, Mineola became a designated Texas Main Street City and in 2000 was chosen as a National Main Street City by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Since its designation the program has produced the development of a strong, focused historic downtown district, with over eleven million dollars of investment made by private and public funds in the central business district.

The Main Street Advisory Board's mission is to use Historic Preservation as a method of restoring a positive image to downtown, while creating economic growth for the community.

Main Street is the heart and soul of a community and with the city, merchants, and the community's strong commitment to revitalizing the historic homes and downtown area, Mineola continues to establish itself as a tourist destination. The Main Street Board, under the supervision of the city, continues to make successful strides in historic preservation, economic vitality in downtown, and a concentrated marketing program that will foster continued growth in our community. Mineola Main Street Program is an outstanding example of what can be accomplished when the city, community, and numerous volunteers work together to create and carry out a common vision!

Mineola Main Streets major fundraiser is the Main Street Amtrak Wine Fest. Come visit us today, where you can stroll down memory lane and shop at our unique antiques, gifts, collectible and dine at our famous restaurants or just simply RELAX, AND REJUVENATE IN OUR DOWNTOWN!
