Historic Downtown

Antiques

Shop Terrell’s antique retailers for unique gifts and collectibles. Find glassware and crystal, furniture and household items to complete your collection or enhance your living spaces with keepsakes from the past at  The Front Porch and Serendipity.

Downtown Shopping District

The Downtown Shopping Area is part of the Terrell Historical District. The vibrant turn-of-the-century Historic District retains the charm of yesteryear with vintage lighting, wide brick sidewalks and updated historic buildings.  Unique storefronts, featuring great architectural details, have been repurposed for retail, restaurant, offices, lofts, museums and specialty services.  

Being designated as an Official Main Street City spurred more than $4 million in sidewalk, landscaping, parking and lighting improvements.  Visitors to the 1925 Iris Theater can find the next best seller or out-of-print books, browse through a ladies' upscale consignment boutique and even watch vintage movies, sitting in the original seats.  Spectacular hand-painted murals that range for classic movie posters, a vintage biplane, antique 1899 automobile, fire engines, the Texas flag and the circus coming to town decorate building walls, providing a visual snapshot of Terrell's rich history.
