AREAS WE SERVE
The small town that’s known as “where Texas began.”
Brazoria, nestled between the Brazos and the San Bernard rivers, is located eight miles southwest of Angleton and 8.4 miles west of Lake Jackson, Texas. Brazoria offers the quaintness of a peaceful small town with the option to work in nearby Houston, which is only an hour away.
Brazoria County is on the prairie of the Gulf Coast at the mouth of the Brazos River and covers 1,597 square miles. The town has a history rich in rice and cotton farming, oil production, and shrimping, fishing and recreation, thanks to its close proximity to the Gulf Coast; it’s only 50 miles inland. Brazoria’s population is tiny, with just over 3,000 community members. The name stems from the Brazos River. When it comes to weather, April, November and March have been reported as the most comfortable months, with July and August as least favorable.
