On November 29, 1871 the City of Bryan officially incorporated. Shortly after incorporation, a public school system was established, a bridge was built across the Navasota River to support local commerce, and a money-lending office was opened. In 2021, Cushing Memorial Library & Archives celebrates the 150th anniversary of the City of Bryan's incorporation through materials we've collected through the years. This digital exhibit highlights the architecture and growth of the city, from a rural settlement to a flourishing city and seat of Brazos County.
To view more local history treasures we invite you to visit us at Cushing Memorial Library & Archives, on the campus of Texas A&M University.
