Marshall was first designated an official Texas Main Street City in 1982 and is currently Affiliated with Main Street America. The Marshall Main Street Program and Main Street Advisory Board work to assist in the revitalization of the downtown area through the use of historic preservation and economic development strategies known as the Four Points:

Economic Vitality

Focuses on capital, incentives, and other economic and financial tools to assist new and existing businesses, catalyze property development, and create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators that drive local economies. 


Supports a community’s transformation by enhancing the physical and visual assets that set the commercial district apart. 


Positions the downtown or commercial district as the center of the community and hub of economic activity, while creating a positive image that showcases a community’s unique characteristics. 


Involves creating a strong foundation for a sustainable revitalization effort, including cultivating partnerships, community involvement, and resources for the district. 

Adopt-A-Planter Program

The City of Marshall Main Street encourages public involvement in the enhancement of planters in and around downtown. The Adopt-A-Planter program is a volunteer-based activity where area volunteer groups “adopt” and maintain designated planters. By working together, we can help to enhance the beauty and create an inviting atmosphere of our Historic Downtown. Each Planter will include a small plaque recognizing the seasonal sponsor. Please fill out the Adopt- A - Planter Application.
