You’ll pass the old Brazoria County Courthouse in Angleton, built in 1896 and expanded in 1916 and again in 1927. It now houses the Brazoria County Historical Museum. It’s rare to find the name Brazosport on current maps, but that’s because it really is nine communities in Southern Brazoria County: Brazoria, Freeport, Lake Jackson, Quintana, Richwood, Surfside, Oyster Creek, Jones Creek, and Clute. Their common bond is the mighty (and usually muddy) Brazos River as it empties into the Gulf of Mexico. For now, just getting to Richmond and its sidekick city of Rosenberg is a pleasure, whether you come north from the Columbias or west from Houston. The countryside primarily is farms and ranches, shaded by mature pecan trees and pleasant to pass by any time of the year. Richmond flows into Rosenberg, the larger of the two towns. An early shipping site on the Brazos, Rosenberg really boomed in 1883, when the railroad came to town. While it remains the commercial center, the two towns have shared a common history for the past century; for day-trippers Richmond is the more historically interesting destination.
