The Brazos River...........Texas

By
Real Estate Agent with Remax - Bryan College Station

The Brazos River was called the "Rio de los Brazos de Dios" by early Spanish explorers, which can be translated as "The Arms of God," according to Handbook of Texas.

What a wonderful rich heritage we have here in the Brazos Valley! The early Spanish explorers knew that river was very special when they first laid eyes on it! If you read articles about the history of Brazos County, you will realize that the settlement and growth was akin to that of a small country. People came from near & far to settle here. If you know any interesting stories about the early settlement of The Brazos Valley, we would love to her them here.

Many of my Italian friends here have rich farm heritages.  Want stories, seek these locals out and they will tell you some great ones.  It is amazing what they have done for this area and how hard they worked to get ahead.
