Bridgeport's roots as the official Stagecoach Capital of Texas began in 1860 when a toll bridge was built over the West Fork of the Trinity River to accommodate the Butterfield Overland Stage Company. Named a Main Street City, downtown features shops in historic buildings along Halsell Street. Events include Butterfield Stage Days Festival and PRCA rodeo in May and the Coal Miners Heritage Festival in the fall.

Open 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Mon.-Fri.
