Brownsville Quick Facts
A Traveler's Guide to BrownsvilleBrownsville is a city that is located in the extreme southern portion of the state of Texas. It is currently the fifteenth largest city in the state. Brownsville was originally a fort that was constructed in 1845 along the US/Mexico border. The fort was named Fort Texas and the Mexican Army laid siege to it during the Mexican American War in 1846. One of the soldiers who died in the siege was Major Jacob Brown and the fort and eventually the city was named Brownsville in his honor.
It was decided that Brownsville would be the site for the Junior College of the Lower Rio Grande Valley, which has grown to become the University of Texas at Brownsville. The primary source of income for the city is the Port of Brownsville. The cityâ€™s location on the water has made it a valuable port for international shipping and trade.
