History

Bryan-College Station Historic Sites

Watch history come to life in Bryan-College Station . Stroll along the tree-lined streets of downtown Bryan and admire the ongoing restoration of many commercial buildings and private homes. Imagine yourself here back in the late 19th century. Shortly after its founding in 1859, the Houston & Central Texas Railroad Co. quickly turned this small-town stop into a vibrant center of commerce. The farming heritage that sprouted up in the rich fields nearby is still alive and well, as highlighted by the many culinary attractions dotting the region today.

In 1876, the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, which later became known as Texas A&M, was established in College Station, just four miles down the road from Bryan. By the turn of the century, the area was a thriving center of agriculture, trade, and cultural opportunities. Philanthropist Andrew Carnegie opened the Carnegie Library in Bryan in 1902. Today, the Carnegie Center of the Brazos Valley is the oldest Carnegie Library in Texas, and just one of many fascinating attractions that draw visitors to the area.

In addition to unique Texas historic landmarks, our towns boast a robust, 21st century economy, quality schools, state-of-the-art healthcare, and safe neighborhoods.
