Brownsville is a borough of Fayette County that was founded in 1785 and is situated about 35 miles South of Pittsburgh along the Monongahela River.

Its prime location on the river made it a major tributary of the Ohio River in the 19th Century. Around this time, the borough became an industrial center, river boat-building powerhouse, and transportation hub. To this day, the Mon is fully navigable at Brownsville and offers inexpensive barge transportation to Chicago, New Orleans, St. Marks Florida, and several other large cities.

Historical landmarks including America’s first cast iron bridge, the 22-room Nemacolin Castle, and tree-lined streets continue to give Brownsville the 19th century feel that it once had. Today, Brownsville is home to nearly 2,500 people who enjoy living in a community with a family-oriented lifestyle consisting of various churches, sports leagues, and a public library.
