Façade/Sign Grant Program

The Henderson Historic Landmark Preservation Committee was created by the Henderson City Council under Ordinance 88-4-14 on April 12, 1988. This committee was given the authority to approve or prohibit construction, destruction or modification of buildings within in the Henderson Historic District.

It is the goal of the committee to see that Henderson’s Historic District be among the best in Texas. To obtain this goal it must be a team effort, with the cooperation of the District’s property and/or business owners, the city of Henderson and this committee. Approval from the Landmark Preservation Committee and City of Henderson Building Inspectors must be obtained before work on the outside of your building begins.

Qualified applicants may be awarded matching funds for façade improvements. Decisions on these grants are made by the Henderson Main Street Advisory Board.

Free design services are available from professionals at the Texas Historical Commission in Austin. Experienced architects will consult with you and provide computerized renderings of various changes that could be made to the outside of your building with the goal of making your building as attractive and historically accurate as possible. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of these free services by working with the Henderson Main Street Director, who will act as liaison with the T.H.C. staff. The renderings they will provide for you will help all of us as we seek to make Henderson’s Historic District the best it can possibly be.
