PILOT POINT ANNOUNCES IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES TOUR, AWARENESS DAY OPPORTUNITIES
City to showcase commercial properties available, including the Farmers & Merchants Bank, at public event
PILOT POINT, Texas – Sept 5, 2023 – Pilot Point Main Street, in partnership with the Pilot Point Municipal Development District, is excited to welcome commercial realtors, investors and the public alike to Imagine the Possibilities. Pilot Point was one selection of a variety of historic downtowns across Texas to participate in this program as part of the Texas Main Street Program by the Texas Historical Commission.
Imagine the Possibilities was launched in 2017 by the Texas Historical Commission to promote their DowntownTX.org website and connect available historic properties with interested new stewards. “The concentrated statewide effort creates synergy and excitement for Texas’ historic downtowns, allows participants special access to spaces, and provides insider information from experienced downtown professionals,” the website states.
Officials behind the efforts for Pilot Point have identified several properties on the Historic Pilot Point Square (listed on the National Registry of Historic Places since 2007), for the tour, including the Farmers & Merchants Bank Building, which was recently listed for sale for $1.59 million. Other key stops along the way include the former Devenport Dry Goods Building at 100 W Main Street, the Magnolia Station property at 110 W Liberty Street, and the Texas Train Station property at 216 W Liberty Street.
“These are unique properties that give new or expanding businesses great options at varying investment levels,” said Denise Morris, Economic Development Director for the Pilot Point Municipal Development District. “Come see what makes this small town the place to be!”
The day will kick off with an reception at the Clifton and Nadene Irick Museum at 201 S Jefferson, before embarking on a bus tour of the latest residential developments and commercial corridors, led by Morris, before returning to downtown for lunch and a self-guided afternoon of historic perusing.
In addition to the properties on the Imagine the Possibilities tour, several buildings that have been successfully restored to their former glory will be open to the public to view, including the Sarah Boyd & Co Real Estate office at 113 S Jefferson, the Pilot Point Ice House at 123 E Main Street and Southern Junkiez Boutique at 108 W Main Street.
“We are so excited to welcome the state of Texas to our downtown to see the momentum we have building here in Pilot Point,” Main Street Director Wendy Haun said. “We welcome any potential investors to our downtown and the city is here to help however we can with the restoration of these amazing properties in our commercial historic district.”
