In 1993, the Reeves-Womack House in Caldwell was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The house was built in the latter 1890s by the merchant-banker William Reeves (1858–1921). He sold the late Victorian structure in 1907 to Mansell Lewis Womack (born 1846) a former Burleson County sheriff. Womack heirs owned the house, located at 405 Fox Steet, until 1957.

Caldwell is the home of the Czech Heritage Museum, which is open to the public on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The annual Kolache Festival, a celebration of Czech heritage named for a type of pastry, is held in Caldwell the second weekend of September. Caldwell Mayor Bernard Rychlik has been co-chairman of the event since 1985. Sadly, Bernard Rychlik died in July 2010 from a fatal car accident. He was a great Caldwell citizen and will be missed.
