Brady, Texas

Settled in the mid-1800s, Brady became the seat of McCulloch County in 1876. It lies at the edge of Hill Country on the former Dodge Cattle Trail. Historical markers note the geographical center of Texas, one is on the picturesque courthouse square, and another, some 15 miles north on U.S. 377, is five miles southeast of the exact center of Texas. Those markers have been superseded by an exact pinpointing of the center point by the Texas Association of Professional Surveyors. A third marker in place on private land was dedicated in March, 1997. In straight-line distance it is 437 miles to the Rio Grande beyond El Paso, 401 miles to the Rio Grande below Brownsville, 412 miles to the Panhandle border beyond Texline, and 341 to the Sabine River near Burkeville. The longest fenced cattle trail in the world once extended from a railhead at Brady to Sonora.

The town is nestled around a picturesque courthouse square that features unique craft and antique shops. It offers excellent parks, city-owned lake and golf course, and fishing year round. Hunting during seasons includes white-tailed deer, wild turkey, dove, and quail.
