Brownsboro is a city in Henderson County with a population of 1,270 friendly people. According to the Texas State Historical Association, the city is named after John “Red” Brown, who settled in the area in 1849. Brownsboro is near the site of Old Normandy, a Norwegian settlement.

Earlier this month, Brownsboro celebrated their 175th anniversary with their Pioneer Day celebration. In the video above, Trayce West with the Brownsboro Chamber of Commerce spoke with Isaac about their celebration and what makes their community so unique.

Isaac also got to speak with Morgan Smith, the owner of Sew You Can Sew, in the video below. Smith started her business after she was asked to make a T-shirt quilt on Facebook and now she’s the owner of one Brownsboro’s many niche small businesses.

In the Small Town Live video below, Robin Savage with Keep Brownsboro Beautiful spoke with Isaac about their efforts to make the city even more beautiful.
