Main Street

What is Main Street?  Main Street is a city’s Historic Downtown District.  Here in Kingsville, Kleberg Ave. from the Kleberg County Courthouse to City Hall forms the backbone of our district which then continues north along 7th Street to the King Ranch Museum.  The Kingsville Downtown National Register District sits at the district’s core.   The district contains commercial buildings, government buildings, museums and churches dating from 1904 to today, mostly constructed of brick, stone or concrete.

These buildings are occupied by a variety of businesses from banks to clinics to salons to retail to restaurants.  Check out the Kingsville Visitor Center website for places to eat, shop and visit downtown and for information on upcoming downtown events.

 

Kingsville Main Street

Kingsville Main Street is committed to revitalizing downtown as the economic and cultural center of the community.  The Main Street program is the vehicle through which to build connections to public and private stakeholders, rekindle community pride and capitalize on downtown’s unique physical assets and Kingsville’s ranching, railroad and Hispanic heritage to bring people and economic investment to our downtown. Since Kingsville rejoined the Main Street program in 2011, private property owners, business owners and the public sector have invested over $26 million in the downtown area.

The Downtown Vision Plan is available here.  Properties in the Main Street district (see map) may be eligible for State and Federal Tax Credits.

 

Doing Business Downtown
