We all have our ideas of how a real hometown should look and feel. Store fronts made of stone. The familiar jingle of a small bell as you enter through a heavy wooden door. Tin ceilings and tile floors that are smooth from generations of use. People who smile and wave, not because they know you, but because it's neighborly. It's real. The way it used to be and the way it is today. Visit downtown Brenham and experience an authentic Texas treasure!
