About Us

Cuero, known for its historic beauty and architecture, was founded in 1873. In 2013, the downtown area was redesignated as a Main Street after its original certification from 1985-1990.

 

Cuero’s Main Street Organization is a department of the City of Cuero that focuses on the revitalization of downtown through marketing, promotions, events, and historic preservation, to bring in tourists, build a community, and make Cuero known for our amazing history and how we came to be. 

 

The organization is governed under the Texas Historical Commission’s Texas Main Street Locally Designated Program. Like the state itself, the currently designated 89 communities that participate in the Texas Main Street network are diverse in many ways. They range from some of the very smallest communities in urban areas and they are spread all across Texas. Together, more than 2.5 million Texans live in these Main Street communities and Cuero is proud to be one of them. The diversity of Texas Main Street Program participants provides evidence that the Four Point model used nationwide by designated programs for more than 30 years can work for any community with a historic downtown.

Our Vision Statement

The mission of the Cuero Main Street program is to encourage reinvestment, preservation, and promotion of our historic downtown district. The Cuero Main Street Advisory Boards’ conception is a program that will combine community resources and volunteer talents to make downtown the center of entertainment, historical tourism, shopping, dining, and a unique place to live. Downtown Cuero is already the gem of our community and the Cuero Main Street program is dedicated to making it shine throughout the Heart of South Texas.

 

The Vision of the Cuero Main Street program is to grow a vibrant and interactive downtown presence. Historic preservation of the significant buildings in Cuero’s Main Street district will be fostered by economic development education for grant and tax credit opportunities so as to present to locals and visitors alike, a community that showcases “the way life ought to be”.
