Bryan is a vibrant, diverse community developed by converging cultures and incredible people from so many different backgrounds. As a community built on train tracks and cotton, we know much of Bryan’s early success came as a result of the institution of slavery, and the unjust and inequitable treatment of African Americans and the many immigrant groups who settled in the Brazos Valley. Today, we honor those groups at sites like the Brazos Valley African American Museum, and with events such as our annual Juneteenth celebrations and Fiestas Patrias every September.
The best way to experience all that Bryan has to offer is to immerse yourself in our shared history, and explore all the threads that have woven together to form the beautiful fabric of our community. As you complete this tour, we encourage you to dive even deeper into our storied past at The Carnegie History Center and discover more legendary stories at 150.bryantx.gov.
