Brundage

Brundage is on State Highway 85 six miles west of Big Wells in northeastern Dimmit County. S. P. Brundage platted the town in 1909, and the community grew quickly after it became a stop on the San Antonio, Uvalde and Gulf Railroad around 1910, the year it was granted a post office. The settlement shipped onions, strawberries, and other crops. By 1915 Brundage had over 100 residents, two general stores, and a telephone connection. The town also had a school at least as early as 1918.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
