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.
Historic Main Street is committed to revitalizing downtown as the economic and cultural center of the community. Kingsville’s ranching, railroad, and Hispanic heritage bring people and economic investment to our downtown. The National Main Street program is the vehicle through which to build those connections to public and private stakeholders, rekindle community pride and capitalize on downtown’s unique physical assets.
