The abouTown Story

The concept of a monthly news magazine focused on the people, places, events, news, and issues of Bryan/College Station came to fruition in October 2007 when abouTown Press was first published. The idea was to truly be "everyone's local news magazine". To that end, abouTown Press continues to be mailed directly to the vast majority of homes and businesses in the area. In fact, abouTown has by far the largest distribution of any local publication.

Farm Life Exhibit at The Brazos Valley Museum
Thu November 10, 2011
All day event
Bryan, Texas --- The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History, in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), proudly presents Farm Life: A Century of Change for Farm Families and Their Neighbors, from November 10, 2011-January 7, 2012. This captivating exhibit allows visitors to gain insight into how families lived and worked on farms, as well as the economic and cultural roots influencing families today. This exhibition, rather than focusing on the technology of farming, examines what it means for a family to live and work on the land. Through artifacts, photographs, graphic text panels, and interactives, audiences learn about the social, economic, and cultural framework of farms and their surrounding communities.
