Living in Bryan, TX
Beginning in the mid- to late-19th century, the region began as a small town located along the railway system, but established itself early as a bustling hub for business and trade in the area. During the Civil War, the construction of the Houston and Texas Central Railroad Company tracks was halted, but it resumed not long after the war ended. Bryan grew to a village of about 300 residents shortly after the first steam train rolled into the town in 1867.
In the early years of the 20th century, small spur tracks were constructed that linked Bryan’s five gins, two cotton yards, compresses, warehouses and rail lines and the cotton-producing lands in the area to markets all around. Bryan’s prosperous agricultural and mercantile businesses were linked to major markets across the country, making the town a vital resource to America.
Although the train routes that allowed Bryan to grow into the prosperous town it is today are abandoned, the history is still alive. Today, the downtown center embraces the cultural significance of its past. The East Historic District, created in 1980 is near 50 homes and structures listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
