About Us

The Mitte Cultural District is home to most of the City of Brownsville's cultural organizations and tourist destinations. The Mitte Cultural District was the vision of the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation when they provided funding for the Dean Porter Park restoration in 1998. They recognized that the area surrounding Dean Porter Park was home to most of the City's cultural organizations, and by designating this area a ''Cultural District'', it would provide the impetus to promote and enhance historical, cultural, educational and family activities.

Our mission is to promote and enhance historical, cultural, and educational activities within the Mitte Cultural District, to encourage cultural and educational attraction through cooperation and programming.
