Westwood cinema 6 is a small theater in Brenham, Texas. But don’t let our size fool you! We play all the current films our six screens can hold!
Bring your church group, school group or family to visit Texas’ oldest continuously serving Baptist church. The present church dates to 1872. The pulpit furniture dates to 1852. Sam Houston was baptized here and carved his and his wife’s initials in their family pew. Baylor University and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor began here. This church has been called the mother church of Texas Baptists because of its significance to Texas Baptist history. The museum remains free, thanks to the generous support of Texas Baptists.
The Official Cotton Gin Museum of Texas keeps the legacy of cotton alive for all generations; open Tues-Sat, 10am-4pm. Home of the 1914 Burton Farmers Gin – the oldest operating cotton gin in America; tours daily at 10am and 2pm. *Leashed pets allowed
The best times are spent with close friends and the whole family, having a few drinks, eating some good grub, listening to music and having a great area where the kids can all play safely while the parents have the chance to unwind from the week’s frenzied pace.
Brenham is the Baseball Capitol of Texas. What could be better than a night at Fenway Park? A night at a miniature version of it, that’s what! And so here we are.
Baseball, but “funner.” And the great thing is, you and your friends can sit out on the deck and enjoy a beverage or two and snack on that concession-type food like chili-cheese dogs and nachos. The kids will run up and ask for some money to get a sno-cone or bag of popcorn or peanuts, just like at the ball park.
The Brenham Heritage Museum is currently operating out of the Brenham Bus Depot while the museum’s main building is undergoing extensive renovations.
