The Texas Main Street program, originated in 1986, is part of the Texas Historical Commission’s Community Heritage Development Division. There are currently 84 Texas Main Street designated communities throughout the state. Royse City was designated as an official Texas Main Street City in 2007. The district consists, generally, of the commercial district on Elm Street (north of Old Greenville Street) to Church Street. At Main Street, the district boundaries expand east to Josephine Street and west, just passed Houston Street.
The Royse City Main Street Program has been Nationally Accredited since 2008. This accreditation is awarded to programs for achieving a record of annual progress operating under the Main Street model.
The Royse City Main Street program envisions downtown Royse City as a sustainable business district, where businesses thrive and historic buildings are valued. Main Street is the heart of Royse City, providing an enhanced sense of community for people of all ages and backgrounds, whether they’ve lived here many years or recently moved to Royse City.
The Royse City Main Street Program is dedicated to building the economic vitality and preserving the character of historic downtown Royse City. We employ the principles of historic preservation, the encouragement of community involvement and the Four Point Approach of organization, design, economic restructuring and promotion to attract businesses, visitors and residents to the Main Street district. By using these tools, the historic downtown will remain a special place to the community.
