Bryan, Texas, nestled in Brazos County, is an integral part of the Bryan-College Station metropolitan area. It proudly houses Texas A&M University, one of the largest universities in the United States, with over 75,000 students. 

Historic downtown Bryan boasts beautifully preserved buildings from the late 1800s and early 1900s, attracting tourists and history enthusiasts alike. The city offers a rich cultural heritage and a variety of parks and recreational areas, such as Lake Bryan, a popular destination for fishing, boating, and swimming. 

Home to Texas Pioneers

Founded in 1860, Bryan was named after William Joel Bryan, a nephew of Stephen F. Austin and one of the area's early settlers. The city was incorporated in 1871 and experienced rapid growth in the late 1800s and early 1900s due to railroad expansion and oil discoveries. 

Annual events like the Texas Reds Steak and Grape Festival, the Brazos Valley Fair and Rodeo, and the Horseman's Market Day keep the community engaged and entertained. Today, Bryan is a thriving city with a population of over 80,000 people, continuing to be the proud home of Texas A&M University.
