A new historical marker installed at Brazoria Heritage Foundation

A new historical marker recently was installed by the Sons of the Confederacy on the grounds of the Brazoria Heritage Foundation, 204 W. Smith St. in Brazoria, near the Brazos Valley Railroad Museum. The marker highlights the Houston, Tap and the Brazoria Railway Co. It was incorporated Sept. 1, 1856, and authorized to run a line from Houston to the Columbia bridge on the Brazos River.

BRAZORIA — Promoting Brazoria County’s history is the primary focus for the 17th annual Heritage Day Celebration at the Brazoria Civic Center.
