US Highway 290 Retail Centers

The corridor along US Highway 290 is thriving with national retailers, restaurants, and amenities. The success of retail in the region has spurred development of 200,000 square feet of new retail at US 290 and Chappell Hill St., known as Brenham Crossing. Brenham Crossing is now open with available leasing. An additional mixed-use development of 51 acres, known as Market Square, is also in development and will consist of retail, multi-family housing, and commercial office space.

Brenham Downtown

Brenham has been accredited as a national Main Street City since 1999. Take a stroll through the very walkable downtown anchored by the historic Washington County Courthouse and you will experience shops and restaurants that are varied, creative, and unique. With a burgeoning live music and arts scene, venues that offer live music, professional theater, and art galleries add to the mix of businesses that draw locals and visitors alike to Downtown Brenham. To round out your downtown experience, visit the historic pocket parks, colorful murals, or catch a show in the beautifully restored Simon Theater at the Barnhill Center.
