History lives, thanks to the Burton Heritage Society! Since 1973 devoted members have maintained and preserved the Burton Railroad Depot and Mt. Zion Cemetery. Both sites are vital to area history. The depot transports visitors to 1870 when Burton was a terminal on the Houston and Texas Central Railroad while the cemetery honors some of the earliest and more notable inhabitants. Open first Saturday of the month and by appointment.
Texas Star Winery is nestled in beautiful Chappell Hill. Come enjoy our award-winning wines in a charming tasting room or out under the trees.
Beneath Brenham streets is a State Archeological Landmark, a large system of historic cisterns. The cisterns were built in the late 1800s to store rainwater for public fire fighting. Private cisterns were also abundant throughout early Washington County, used for bathing, drinking and cooking. Enjoy the Wild West story of why these cisterns were built. It’s a tale of an early railroad, a rough Boom Town, and colorful characters who shaped Washington County’s history. Self-guided tours through this historic Downtown Brenham pocket park can be enjoyed any time of the day.
The hilly, well-designed 18-hole golf course, along with a fine clubhouse, is a family-oriented club in Brenham. Open to the public by reservation. Brenham Golf & Country Club also has a beautiful banquet room overlooking the golf course that is available for private parties up to 120 people.
