MINEOLA MAIN STREET/MINEOLA NATIONAL MAIN STREET PROGRAM - SINCE 1989
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. 2013 Wine Fest will be March 16th and 17th.
