Historic Downtown Bridgeport

In 2006 Bridgeport was named a Texas Main Street City and in 2007 has also been recognized as a National Main Street City numerous times. This prestigious recognition shows that the City and its residents are committed to preserving our historic business district, both architecturally and economically. Extensive renovations have been made to the Bridgeport Stage, a former Arcadia movie theater, which now houses a versatile performance hall. Main Street low-interest loans and grants have been used by many small businesses to restore historic buildings.
