Here are some photos of the historic Main Street area of Richardson, Texas. The first two are mine, and were taken during yesterday’s sunset; when I stopped at a gas station to fill up on the way home, the golden sunlight was beautiful across the old buildings, and I knew it was a good time for this post.
The town of Richardson was founded in 1873, and was primarily a farming community for its first 80 years. Many hundreds of acres were devoted to growing cotton, and one of the largest seasonal employers in town was the massive cotton gin just a couple of blocks off of Main Street.
By the time we moved here in 1957, the population had grown to about 6,000, and downtown was a bustling place. However, as seen in the pictures from ca. 1910 forward to 1958, the buildings of downtown have changed little. The primary businesses along our Main Street; the drug store, the general store, a couple of cafes, and the movie theater, all continued to anchor downtown up into the 1960s.
Now, the area is set for a redo, as announced by the City of Richardson. There are plans to make it more pedestrian-friendly and to bring family-oriented businesses back to Main Street to replace the hodgepodge of bars and clubs. My old hometown may soon be all new again! #RichardsonTexas
