Brushie Prairie

Brushy Prairie, on Farm Road 1578 eighteen miles west of Corsicana in northwestern Navarro County, was established before 1900. Two schools were in operation there by the early 1900s–a school for Whites with an enrollment of sixty-five and one for Blacks with an enrollment of fifty-four. In the mid-1930s Brushy Prairie had a church, a gin, a blacksmith shop, a school, a cemetery, and several stores.
