Brownsville, Oregon

A down-home version of the pioneer experience awaits you in Brownsville, a town of 1,500 people located five miles east of Interstate 5 between Salem to the north and Springfield to the south.

This 1846 settlement began to prosper in 1862 with a woolen mill and, shortly thereafter, the coming of the railroad.

Attractions include the Linn County Historical Museum located in a turn-of-the century train depot flanked by freight cars and a circus train. Displays inside these structures focus on the lifestyle of the area's first settlers (a barbershop, kitchen, post office, etc.), the Calapooya tribe, and local natural history.

The museum also coordinates wagon-ride interludes into the past. Known as Carriage Me Back Days, these excursions reenact daily life from days of old. This pageant takes place the third weekend of April.

Brownsville and vicinity has other worthwhile attractions. A pioneer cemetery on the east end of Kirk Street shelters the grave of the last Calapooya Indian and some headstones here date to 1846, when Brownsville was established.
