The Organization of Beaumont Main Street

 

Beaumont Main Street is a project of the 501(c)(3) organization

BUILD, Inc. We are dedicated to the restoration and revitalization of

Beaumont’s historic Central Business District.

 

Beaumont Main Street is governed by a 15 member Board of Directors elected annually by the membership. We have a full time staff of two.

 

Our beginnings start in the early 1970s, when city leaders organized Central City Development Corporation. In 1985, CCDC became BUILD, Inc. and a 501(c)(3) status was obtained. BUILD, Inc. is an acronym for Beaumont Urban Improvement Leadership for Downtown, Inc. In 1991, BUILD, Inc. and the City of Beaumont applied for Main Street designation from the Texas Historical Commission and the National Trust. The designation was approved and in 1992 Beaumont Main Street began the work of revitalizing the Beaumont Commercial District, a National Register District.

 

Beaumont Main Street is southeast Texas' only organization officially affiliated with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Texas Historical Commission.

 

After nearly 26 years, Beaumont Main Street continues to be an advocate, not only for brick and mortar, but a healthy and vibrant downtown that Beaumonters can be proud of.
