Brownsville is a city on the move.

Located in the heart of West Tennessee along Interstate 40, this rural town of just over 10,000 has a rich cultural heritage, a proud educational system and an enthusiastic outlook for the future that position our city to be a leader in the region for years to come.

In the past 12 months, Brownsville has been named a national Main Street Community—one of just 28 in the state of Tennessee—and awarded two new National Historic Districts.

Thanks to the industrial development of the state supported Memphis Regional Megasite, the unique ecology of the federally supported Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge, and the high quality of life supported by our citizens, Brownsville is proud to say that we truly are ‘A Good Place to Live.’
