In 1980, the National Trust for Historic Preservation launched the national Main Street program, and Texas was one of six state pilot programs in the initiative. This year, the national Main Street Now conference will be hosted in Dallas, May 18–20, during the 40th anniversary of the Texas Main Street Program and Main Street America.
To celebrate this milestone, we’re offering the Let’s Texas, Main Street Sweepstakes. One lucky, random winner will receive a travel package for two showcasing Denton, a vibrant Main Street community located just north of Dallas. One of only two Texas recipients of the Great American Main Street Award (the other is Georgetown), Denton has been in the Main Street network since 1990. It’s a wonderful heritage tourism destination, with a bustling courthouse square centered on the grand, 1896 building affectionately known by locals as the Courthouse-on-the-Square. The square and surrounding blocks are packed with historic buildings housing hip restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and boutiques, making the town center the perfect place to start your original, independent experience.
The Let’s Texas, Main Street Sweepstakes entry period will run February 1–29.
