Sims is on the Southern Pacific Railroad and Farm Road 50 ten miles east of Bryan in western Brazos County. In the early 1900s the community had a rural school and a train station on the Texas and New Orleans Railroad. In 1949 Sims had numerous scattered dwellings and two schools. In 1990 the small community was surrounded by oil, corn, and cotton fields.
