Bartlett's History

The Bartlett Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, stands as a cohesive group of early 1900s commercial buildings, and reflects the town's prosperity achieved during the early 20th century as a cotton shipping center in central Texas.


Nearly 90 percent of the buildings in the district are historically significant and very few have been significantly altered.

 

The main street is remarkably intact and includes the core of the city’s past.  Bartlett is split between two counties - Bell and Williamson.
