Like many Texas communities in the mid- and late-19th century, Bryan began as a small-town stop along the state's expanding railway system. But almost from the beginning, Bryan was different. It quickly distinguished itself by flourishing into a vibrant - and permanent - center of business and trade. The city of College Station is a young municipality, with its beginnings in the founding of Texas A&M College.

Texas' first state institution of higher education, the College was inaugurated in 1876. Because of the school's isolation, school administrators provided facilities for those who were associated with the college. The campus became the focal point of community development. The area was designated "College Station, Texas" by the Postal Service in 1877. Citizens voted 217 to 39 on October 19, 1938, to incorporate the city of College Station.
