Brownville is such a small town that everybody knows everybody. It is a tight-knit community that rallies together for any cause big or small. There is almost always a fundraiser going on to help give back to the community, and everybody is very friendly.

It's a nice place to live, not too busy, but still having everything you might need. As far as entertainment goes, it's rather lacking. The most exciting thing you could do is go somewhere else, as they say. A lot of people move here because they're military, but it doesn't give much of a reason to stay if you're looking for lots to do.
From an average person's perspective, the biggest crime around here is littering, and even that's pretty mild. Old folks talk about all the druggies, but you don't really hear about big drug busts going on around here.
