Host Your Reunion Here

It was on March 2, 1836, that a delegation of 59 men gathered at Washington on the Brazos to draft a Declaration of Independence and establish a constitution for a new nation. They declared Texas a “free, sovereign and independent republic.” Washington County, the “Birthplace of Texas,” is etched in the history books forever.

Brenham is the county seat for this historic and scenic region. The area was opened to settlement in 1821, one of the earliest settled areas in Texas. Pioneers from all parts of the United States and immigrants from Western Europe flocked to Austin’s colony to take advantage of its liberal land grants. The area’s German heritage is demonstrated at the annual Maifest Celebration.
