of the more interesting changes in Monahans since its designation as a Main
Street City in 1997 is also a subtle one. It's the installation of what is sometimes
referred to as "metal art" on street signs and selective city buildings.
The results might have been very different had there not been a master-plan, or
if the quality of workmanship was low. As it is, the visitor is immediately made
aware of the cooperative attitude and pride of Monahanians and it's difficult
for a visitor not to drive out of their way just to see what's on the next sign.

The Main Street City Project and Monahans' Metal Sculptures
Monahan's Main Street Project Manager, Suzi Blair tells us that the signs
were donated by individual Monahan citizens and the Dunagan Foundation.
The city is just 22,000 dollars short of having invested one million dollars back
into business development, beautification and preservation since they were designated
a Main Street City in 1997.
Where to Stay
Blair is the original Main Street Project Manager and we appreciate her help in
preparing Monahan's Town Page. |
