Respecting a Rich Legacy
J.C. and Nancy Bryson established the area in 1872, building the first two rooms of their farmstead using cedar from Bastrop and limestone from the San Gabriel River. Originally, the 800-acre farm was used for livestock grazing, cash crops and family meals, but it eventually transitioned to a cotton farm. In creating today’s Bryson, we have taken every effort to show respect for the Bryson family, and prepare their land for the next generation of pioneers.
