The Index

Welcome!

Brazos Buildings & Businesses (formerly College Station Roads and Retail, and briefly In, Around, and About the Brazos Valley) is a historical (with commentary!) blog about the city of Bryan-College Station. Keep in mind that the Main Index isn't updated enough as the main site, so check the main page, there may be a post or two that isn't covered here. Due to various work over the years, many of the URLs (especially older pages from before 2013) do not match up with the main title of the page due to further updates on the page, and (in rare cases) a page may be removed entirely. Send me an email if you stumble across an old link before I do.

Additionally, there are a number of other pages that are online and I intend to fix someday but aren't listed in this index. Over time, I do intend to fix this.
