About this District

In September 2009, the Huntsville Cultural District was designated by the Texas Commission on the Arts as one of the first seven state cultural districts.

The Huntsville Cultural District encompasses a variety of facilities and attractions including:

  • Museums and Art Galleries
  • Artist Studios and Workshops
  • Historic Homes and Sites
  • Theaters and Performances
  • Cultural Events and Festivals


The Cultural District is home to some of the finest historical architecture in Texas. Enhancing the downtown buildings are murals by world-renowned artist Richard Haas. You can also tour artistically unique homes built from recycled materials that were created by Dan Phillips of Phoenix Commotion.

You can enjoy self-guided walking and driving tours, art activities, music-theater-dance performances, shopping, antiquing, and unique eateries.

Make the Huntsville Cultural District your next travel destination. We hope you find the trip enjoyable and your experience memorable!
