Creator Sketch

Brenham, Texas, was originally known as the Hickory Grove community until it changed its name to Brenham in 1843 in honor of Republic of Texas hero Dr. Richard Fox Brenham, who practiced medicine in the area. In 1875, Brenham established the first tax-supported school system in Texas, which included a school for Blacks. In 2012, Brenham Independent School District was the largest public school district in the county with an enrollment of over 4700 students.
