The past continues to be embraced today, made evident by historic structures such as the Alvin Depot, the “original town” neighborhoods, and traditional downtown area. Alvin is a community that is committed to preserving its heritage while also optimistic about what lies ahead to maintain the quality of life enjoyed today.
