Brownsville was established in 1848 and became the county seat of the newly formed Cameron County in 1849, and was used as a major smuggling point for Confederate goods going into Mexico – most notably cotton. The city has grown slowly but surely during the 20th century and was actually named as an All-American City in 2001, though in recent years poverty has been a problem that city leaders have been trying to address. City beautification is at an all-time high, however, which is helping in that regard.

Brownsville, located at the southern tip of Texas, sees a lot of its weather patterns affects by the Gulf of Mexico.
