THE COUNTRY IS CALLING


Chairman’s

Message

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce,

Welcome to Washington County! Whether you’re here for a day or for a lifetime, we hope this 2016 edition of the Chamber magazine will give you a small glimpse of all that Washington County has to offer.

Photo credit - Mary Anne Moran

What kind of community is Washington County? If you ask the 780+ Chamber Member businesses, you’d probably get different answers like,“a great place to raise a family,” or “a prosperous place to own a business.” But one answer all of them will agree on is that Washington County is “home.”

Chamber Commerce

Home is where your roots are and ours are just about the deepest you can find in Texas. Proudly known as the “Birthplace of Texas”, Washington County is not only home for our State, but also home for many thriving businesses, the 33,000+ people who live and work here, and the 200,000 + tourists who visit every year for bluebonnets, beautiful scenery, festivals, and more. Why have so many chosen to make this community home? Washington County is blessed with top-notch schools, wonderful medical facilities that are dedicated to caring for the health wellness of the community, great options for dining and entertainment, antiques, art, Blue Bell, Blinn College, and many, many more fine businesses. Take all these elements and put them in the most beautiful land in the Great State of Texas and what have you got? Home. From our rich cultural past, our vibrant present, and our promising future, welcome to Washington County. Welcome home.

OF

Promoting Tourism in Washington County Brenham is not only a wonderful place to reside it’s a great place to visit.

Be sure to stop by the new Washington County Visitor Center inside the restored Simon Theatre in historic Downtown Brenham (115 W. Main St).

That’s where the Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) steps in. Operated by the Washington County Chamber of Commerce under a contract with the City of Brenham, the CVB serves numerous functions. Besides assembling the annual Visitor Guide filled with the unique and interesting attractions and tourism-related businesses that Washington County has to offer, the CVB staff also place advertising to attract visitors, and convention delegates and conference attendees to the area. Along with both print and online advertising programs, the CVB creates publicity and promotions to generate public awareness of events, activities and all that the city and county have to offer. In addition, staff maintains and continuously updates the visitor website, www.VisitBrenhamTexas.com. The staff works closely with group tours and convention groups and attends trade shows to promote Brenham and Washington County.We provide “welcome gift bags” to motor coach tours, conference attendees and VIP delegations visiting the county. Promoting destination weddings in Washington County is also a focus for marketing efforts.The Chamber-CVB partners with other agencies, associations and businesses, as needed, to promote this very special destination. The work of this department benefits every resident and every business, whether or not tourism-related. All these efforts combine to bring visitors who spend dollars in our communities, shop in beautiful downtown stores, sample many area restaurants and overnight in area hotels and bed & breakfast lodging properties. Chamber-CVB staff members also annually prepare a marketing plan and budget, separate from the Chamber’s operations budget, that the city’s Hotel Occupancy Tax board must approve and recommend to the City for adoption before any hotel occupancy tax dollars are expended. The use of these tax dollars is strictly governed by State Tax Code and, in general, must be devoted to advertising and public relations efforts that promote visitors, tourists and conventions to come to Brenham and Washington County. The Visitor Center and CVB staff are located in the 1925 Simon Theatre building at 115 W. Main Street in downtown Brenham. The theatre lobby, visitor center and second floor ballroom are beneficiaries of the recent Simon restoration. In addition, the restored 1925 theatre will provide space for meetings, parties, conferences and other activities. An adjacent building will provide restrooms for the theatre space as well as smaller meeting rooms, when completed.

The efforts of the Chamber’s CVB are focused and directed to promoting Washington County... as a great destination for family fun, adventure and relaxation. The 2016 VISITOR GUIDE is available FREE upon request!

Chamber Membership Washington County is one of the fastest growing counties in Texas. At the center of this growth and development is the Washington County Chamber of Commerce. With 780+ members, the Chamber represents both large and small businesses from all professions and industries. The Chamber’s strength lies in the number and the diversity of its members. The mission of the Chamber is multi-faceted, but it really all comes back to our support of your business by helping to create and maintain an economic climate in which businesses can thrive. The Chamber is your voice in local, state and national government. Within the Chamber, businesses of all sizes can have a powerful impact on important community issues. The collective power of the membership can make your voice more easily heard. If you are a business just opening its doors, we’ll welcome you to the community by hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony. Our Blue Blazers will be there to assist you and to lend their support. Because we value your membership, throughout the year we will promote your business in a number of ways. Each member receives a free listing on the Chamber website www.brenhamtexas.com, space in the Visitor’s Center to display brochures and/or business cards, and referrals when inquiries are made. Networking is crucial for any business and the Chamber offers regular networking opportunities to assist you in making new business contacts. The Chamber’s monthly “Business After Hours” is Washington

County’s favorite networking event. The “Wake Up, Washington County!” breakfasts and “Tourism Tuesday” meetings are more structured peer-to-peer networking events. The monthly ChamberWorks (printed) and E-News (emailed) newsletters deliver the latest Chamber and community news directly to members and civic leaders throughout the county and region. The annual Chamber Magazine & Business Directory and the annual Washington County Visitor’s Guide are both great hands-on tools that reach people in a vast area. The Washington County Chamber of Commerce is recognized for outstanding programs such as Leadership Washington County and first-class events such as the “Tailgate” event. The Chamber offers quality educational programs and seminars designed to provide practical assistance to business owners and managers. We respect the entrepreneurial spirit of business owners and believe that the money you invest in Chamber membership can be one of your wisest investments.

Leadership Washington County Leadership Washington County (LWC) is a prestigious ten-month program committed to educating, training and motivating existing and emerging leaders to build more effective skills for the future benefit of Washington County. Over 450 men and women have graduated from LWC, and the 21st session is now in progress. Applications are accepted each year from June 1 through July 20.

Program Goals •

To educate, train and provide experiences that enhance leadership skills.

To provide opportunities for participants to develop lasting relationships among community leaders.

To provide greater awareness of community issues and opportunities to serve locally.

To provide greater access to community resources and networking.

To motivate participants to help make a difference in our community by becoming actively involved.

Each year, the program begins in August with an orientation followed by a team-building retreat. Day-long sessions are held once a month from August through May. LWC participants attend educational sessions covering many aspects of this community and region. The sessions create an awareness of the resources of Washington County and put the class in contact with local experts in various fields. Participants gain valuable experience from interacting with each other and forming lasting relationships with other professionals.

Employers are encouraged to send key personnel through the class, and then benefit by having an employee who has sharper skills, knowledge of resources in the county, and connections with other local leaders. The LWC program involves a time commitment of one day a month for ten months and a tuition fee that covers all tours, meals, group travel and supplies. The program culminates with a graduation banquet in May. For more information, contact the Chamber at (979) 836-3695.

Stephen F.Austin chose the area between the Brazos and Colorado Rivers for his original settlers because it was fertile land and it was a beautiful land. Washington County is truly the “birth place of Texas” and has played an important pivotal part in the history of Texas. Many historic sites and museums in Washington County offer a glimpse of that history and help to tell the story of early Texas. It is not just the beauty and the history that make Washington County special. The people make it special. Yes, there are direct descendants of the original settlers but most of us are those who have chosen Washington County for their home and are a down to earth, friendly, charitable people who will make your visit special and you will be glad you had a chance to meet. We are proud of our community and on behalf of the Commissioners Court we are glad you came to visit and hope you come back often. If you are thinking of moving to Washington County you’ll find we welcome with open arms down to earth, friendly, charitable folks. They are a good fit for us and we will be a good fit for you.

Message

As a fifth generation Texan and the Texas State Representative who represents Washington County, it is a pleasure to welcome you to an extraordinary place steeped in Texas history. It was in this very county that a group of patriots birthed a nation named the Republic of Texas. Modern day Washington County is a vibrant community with great public schools, wonderful businesses such as the Blue Bell Creamery, and caring people surrounded by beautiful farmlands and rolling hills. We are especially proud of the seasonal bluebonnets, our state flower, that color our landscape. I hope you enjoy your time here in Washington County, or as I like to call it, "God's Country!" Please let us know if we can be of any assistance.

The Brenham Clinic has been faithfully and compassionately serving Washington and surrounding counties for the past 58 years. The founders of Brenham Clinic, Dr. W.F. Hasskarl, Sr., Dr. W.F. Hasskarl, Jr., and Dr.Thomas Giddings, began with a shared passion for providing high-quality healthcare to the Washington County area. For over half a century, their vision has served as the guiding force for the Brenham Clinic.The clinic has grown into a multi-specialty facility that is home to 14 dedicated physicians and a team of healthcare experts who www.BrenhamTexas.com


utilize advanced medical technology and techniques to care for the members of our community. Today, the Brenham Clinic touches more lives than ever before. It has expanded its facilities, service lines, and programs to provide the advanced level of care you expect, close to home. These amenities include a full laboratory, digital radiology, personalized women’s health services, and advanced diagnostic imaging and MRI services through the Hasskarl-Giddings Imaging Center. The Clinic’s physicians work with a talented staff of healthcare professionals to provide experienced diagnosis and treatment in the fields of Family Practice, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Pediatrics and Radiology. Through its affiliation with College Station Medical Center, additional medical specialties are also available in the fields of Cardiology, Orthopedic Surgery, ENT/Otolaryngology, Audiology, Allergy, Nephrology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Physical Medicine, Pain Management, Oncology, Rheumatology and Urology. Among the Brenham Clinic’s proudest accomplishments is one designed especially for the care and comfort of women. The Clinic was the first in the community to introduce advanced digital mammography technology and “same-day reads” at the Hasskarl-Giddings Imaging Center. This comprehensive breast diagnostic program allows women to receive their digital mammogram and their preliminary results on the same day, relieving the anxiety and worry that are common while waiting on mammography results. The facility provides a warm, serene and comfortable environment for women during their mammogram appointments. Each mammogram is immediately reviewed by Dr. John McIntire, a board-certified radiologist with over 30 years of experience in diagnostic radiology.

FIRE The Brenham Fire Department was created by City ordinance on June 10, 1867. The company was founded, on the surface, to protect against fire, but in actuality, it was created as a military organization to protect the lives and property of citizens from Union soldiers stationed here during the Reconstruction era. In May, 1879, the BFD became the proud owner of a new Silsby Steam Engine, which could pump 600 gallons per minute. It was designed to be drawn by hand or by horses. The historically preserved engine now sits in a special exhibit next door to the Brenham Heritage Museum. The current BFD has 15 paid Fireman including a Fire Chief, Deputy Chief/Fire Marshal, Deputy Fire Marshal, 3 Captains and 9 Apparatus Operators, plus an administrative assistant and over 50 volunteers.

An Expanding Local Economy Growing Businesses and the Community According to studies done by the Houston Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas,Washington County has one of "the most solid" economies for a rural community in Texas. Washington County's healthy economy is bolstered by a number of factors: population growth, job creation, diversity of employment, location, retail sector, tourism, comparatively low taxes, and a superb quality of life. Due to the upsurge of nearby major metropolitan areas and a shift in the job market, the population in Washington County saw a resurgence in the last two decades. From 2000 to 2014, the population in the county increased by 13% from 30,373 to 34,438. During the same time period Texas had an increase of 29%.This population growth is not only a result of a healthy economy, but also a quality of life that attracts both businesses and families. As an example of business growth, 39 major expansions have occurred since 2000 by local manufacturers and a substantially increased number of retail establishments have called Washington County home. Coupled with an influx of outside dollars (primarily from tourism) and its increase in population, Washington County has witnessed a 88% increase in gross sales during the period 2002 to 2014 (from $1,087,888,518 total annual sales to $2,045,072,268). Tied with increases in local sales, the county possesses strong export sales, including oil & gas, manufacturing, wholesale, and retail to outside residents. A total of 1,959 new jobs have been added to the payroll during the period 2001 to 2014, with most of those occurring in the areas of manufacturing, professional services, retail, wholesale and governmental.

The average household income in the county was $59,313, according to the U.S. Census. As an example of economic growth, the Bureau of Economic Analysis recently released numbers that showed Total Personal Income in Washington County had risen by 99% from 2000 to 2013.This figure ranks above other communities in the region. The TPI combined with a comparatively low tax rate equates to a standard of living attractive both to employers and employees. Also of key importance to residents and businesses is Brenham's excellent location. In fact, 72% of the state's population lives within a 210-mile radius of Brenham. Located in the "golden triangle" or “core” of Texas, Brenham's proximity to Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas allows it to serve as a nucleus for manufacturing, retail and tourism. Additionally, Brenham serves as an employment hub for an eightcounty region. Within 20 miles of Brenham’s Hwy. 290 and Hwy. 36 intersection, there is currently an estimated population of 60,776. Whether you’re coming as a visitor, a family looking to relocate, or an expanding or budding business, Washington County has an economy that supports a superior quality of life.

A remarkable diversity allows our local economy to be independent of single industry fluctuations, thus avoiding the severe economic downturns that some rural communities experience. Currently,Washington County supports a labor force of just over 15,800 employees and has experienced an average unemployment rate of 4.5% in 2014.

Another example of Brenham's strong economy is its thriving downtown district, which in just the last two years has seen a considerable influx of new businesses and building occupancy. The City of Brenham has participated in the Main Street downtown revitalization program for the past 15 years, and the results are impressive.

Brenham State Supported Living Center and Blue Bell Creameries rank as the county's largest employers. Major manufacturers and wholesalers include Tempur-Sealy, Valmont Industries, Emerson, RR Donnelly, Brenham Wholesale Grocery, and MIC Group. Other major employers include the educational systems, primarily Blinn College and Brenham ISD; and professional businesses, including Germania Insurance’s state headquarters and Scott & White Hospital-Brenham.

Brenham's central location, its business diversity, progressive local vision and great quality of life are melding together to ensure a bright economic future.

A Memory Just Waiting to Happen Downtown Brenham

Main Street Brenham continually works to enhance and promote this National Register District at the heart of Brenham. Local artists have the opportunity to take a bow in the spring and display their talents when Main Street hosts the “Spring Eggs Art Walk” near Easter, and elementary school classes and local businesses and individuals take the stage when decorating downtown during the “Scarecrow Extravaganza” in the fall. Downtown sits back and toe-taps its way through Saturday nights in July as the “Hot Nights. Cool Tunes Summer Concert Series” is presented on the square. Great entertainment – free to all – is offered as shade hits the east side of the courthouse!

Working to improve the downtown “experience” is key to the city’s revitalization efforts, and numerous volunteers help make it happen. These volunteers add to work being done by business owners, property owners, and city and Chamber of Commerce staff members. Downtown improvements are truly a community-driven effort! You’ll find dining and shopping options are abundant and varied. This, along with wonderful lodging opportunities, visitor-friendly public restroom facilities, the oasis of Alamo Alley, an inviting streetscape and the new Antique Fire Truck Museum at the Brenham Heritage Museum help make downtown a memory just waiting to happen.

Brenham's Christmas Stroll and Lighted Parade highlight the first weekend in December. Choirs, instrumental entertainment provide holiday sounds while delightful shopping venues sparkle along the beautifully lighted downtown streets. And, a nighttime lighted parade brings Santa to town. Even more fun and continued improvements are on the horizon, as the public and private sectors work together to keep Downtown Brenham thriving.

Downtown is Wireless Another thing to keep in mind…if you want to enjoy both our beautiful weather and the ambiance of Downtown Brenham, bring your laptop and plan to hang out awhile, because downtown Brenham is wireless! Get connected and enjoy some time “surfing” around the courthouse square.

Libraries The Nancy Carol Roberts Memorial Library is temporarily located at 200 W. Vulcan Street (inside City Hall), while a major renovation is underway at the permanent building site. As always, the library offers a wide selection of books, summer reading programs, internet stations, interlibrary loan, children’s programs, genealogy resources and reference books.

Washington County Life Brief History Why is Washington County known as the Birthplace of Texas? It was on March 2, 1836, that a delegation of 59 men gathered at Washington-on-the-Brazos to determine what course of action to take to protect themselves from the tyrannical Mexican government that was ruling the land. A few days later, news of the massacre at the Alamo reached the men in Washington. Under Sam Houston’s direction, the delegates carried out their mission to draft a Declaration of Independence and establish a constitution for a new nation. They declared Texas a “FREE, SOVEREIGN, and INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC.” Etched in the history books forever is Washington County, the “Birthplace of Texas.” Brenham is the county seat for this historic and scenic region. The area was opened to settlement in 1821 under the Spanish and was one of the earliest settled areas in Texas. The county was formally organized in 1837 in the heart of Stephen F. Austin’s original colony. Pioneers from all parts of the United States and immigrants from western Europe flocked to Austin’s colony for its liberal land grants. German immigration began in Washington County in the 1840s and increased after the Civil War. The county is very proud of its German heritage demonstrated at the annual Maifest celebration. Brenham was established in 1844 and named for Richard Fox Brenham, a hero of the Texas Republic and the Mier Expedition. It was occupied by Federal troops after the Civil War, and they burned much of the city in 1866 following a confrontation with local citizens. Of the four colleges originally founded in Washington County, Blinn College, established in 1883, is still a thriving part of the community today. Downtown Brenham is the heart and soul of the community and features a wide array of antiques and specialty shops throughout the historic “Main Street” district.

Burton was originally located about two miles northwest of its present site. It was first known as Kerr Settlement, then later called Union Hill. When the railroad bypassed Union Hill, the settlement shifted around 1870 to property on the railroad line previously owned by John and Elizabeth Burton. This site became the terminal for the Houston and Texas Central Railroad. Cotton farming reigned in Burton and, as a result, the city prospered throughout the late 1800s. In spite of its small population of 325, Burton has managed to hold on to its post office, school district and bank. It has its own police force, fire department, and water and sewer systems. The old Burton Cotton Gin has been restored and it attracts thousands of tourists each year. The town of Washington holds a unique place in Texas history, and today you will find Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site and the Star of the Republic Museum on its original site. The museum interprets the saga of the Republic of Texas through state-of-the-art exhibits, and a Children’s Discovery Center allows young people to experience history through hands-on activities. The period also comes to life at the Barrington Living History Farm complex where visitors can experience a working farm of the 1850’s. You can spend some time in the Visitor Center with interactive exhibits, enjoy a picnic lunch on the beautiful park grounds next to the Brazos River, explore interpretive trails and tour the museum. Plus, each year on the weekend nearest to March 2, the Texas Independence Day Celebration is held to recognize this pivotal event in Texas history.

Washington County Life Chappell Hill was founded in 1847 by Mary Hargrove Haller, granddaughter of Robert Wooding Chappell, for whom she named the town. Her husband, Jacob, was the town’s first postmaster. The tiny town prides itself on having established two colleges, Chappell Hill Female College and Soule University, along with five churches. Soule University later became part of what is now Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. Chappell Hill prospered in the early days and the town became a popular stagecoach stop for travelers between Houston, Austin and Waco. The elegant Stagecoach Inn still sets on the corner of Main and Chestnut Streets, its Greek Revival-style architecture featuring highly detailed cornices with downspouts that bear the Lone Star and the 1851 date they were added. The Civil War and Reconstruction era brought violent changes to Chappell Hill.The yellow fever epidemic of 1867 also took a toll, nearly wiping out the community. Nevertheless, the town survived all of this and entered a new era of growth and prosperity while maintaining its rich heritage.The Chappell Hill Historical Museum illustrates the region’s history with fascinating exhibits and artifacts.

Independence was originally called “Coles Settlement.”The town had its beginning in 1824 on land granted by Mexico to Judge John P. Coles, who came to Texas in 1821 as one of Austin’s 300 colonists. In 1836 the community was renamed Independence in honor of Texas’ declaration of freedom from Mexico. In 1839, a Baptist church was established and its congregation still meets today. The Independence Baptist Church is now the oldest continuously operating Baptist church in the state. Sam Houston attended church and was baptized there, and legend has it that following his baptism in the creek, Houston said, “I pity the fish downstream.” Houston’s mother-in-law was so thrilled with his transformation that she had a large iron bell created and presented it to the church with gratitude. The Texas Baptist Historical CenterMuseum features this bell, along with many other early Texas history exhibits. Independence is also home to the original site of Baylor University, founded in 1846. The university was moved to Waco in 1886, but the ruins of Old Baylor still stand, surrounded by a peaceful park and playground area. This park is renowned as one of the best places in the state to see bluebonnets in the spring. At the peak of the season, the landscape mirrors the sky and Old Baylor is covered in a sea of blue flowers.
