The City of Bridgeport is committed to preserving our downtown business district by using our past to promote our future. Our Main Street efforts are based on the premise that our historic buildings, tall tales, and philosophies passed from generation to generation are what give our community its sense of place and helps us maintain our unique identity.
In 2007 Bridgeport was named a Texas Main Street City by the Texas Historical Commission and Texas Main Street Association. Bridgeport Main Street has been a Texas Main Street City since then and has monthly and annual criteria to keep up this distinguished recognition. Also, in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Bridgeport Main Street was recognized as a Nationally Accredited Main Street Program.
The Bridgeport Main Street Board helps guide revitalization efforts by using the Texas Historical Society's Main Street four points approach, which includes design, organization, promotion, and economic restructuring.
Mission: Bridgeport Main Street Program, through dedicated volunteers and collaboration with organizations will promote historic preservation, revitalization and economic vitality in our historic downtown area. By active partnerships and efforts, we will create a unique destination filled with history, culture and charm.
Vision: Bridgeport Main Street cultivates a vibrant downtown, one that embraces the past and celebrates the future, through preservation, economic development and community involvement.
