The City of Weatherford is part of Main Street America and the Texas Main Street Program. Both focus on revitalizing downtown areas and preserving historical elements to encourage commercial/retail vitality.
In September 2016, the Main Street Program hosted the Bankhead Celebration in partnership with the Downtown Business Alliance, located in downtown Weatherford. As part of the celebration, Dan Smith, founder of the Texas Bankhead Association, also partnered with Weatherford to provide guidance and support. You can see a quick highlight of Dan's work by watching the feature below from Texas Country Reporter with Bob Phillips.
