History:  

BROWNSVILLE Township, first settled in November 1848, organized May 11, 1858, was named for its steamboat landing and village, platted in 1854, by Job and Charles Brown, brothers, who came to Minnesota in 1848 from the state of New York. Biographic notes of both are in the MHS Collections, vol. 14. The city of Brownsville in sections 23 and 26, which is the oldest settlement in the county and was the first county seat, was incorporated as a village on March 2, 1858. When first settled, the community was known as Wild Cat Bluff. By 1870 the village had 50 businesses including a sawmill and a brewery, farming and lumbering being main industries. Its post office was established in Wabasha County and transferred to Houston County in 1852; it had a station of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad in section 26.
