The town is slowly growing. It offers many great schools. A variety of shopping and eating. There are three colleges that offer a mass selection of careers. As a mother I feel safe in town with my children. I can take them to a different park every day of the week. Abilene is only a hour and 10 mins away.
Brownwood is a great town to live in once you retire and settle down. The area is very small , doesn't take very much time if any to get where you need to go. The only downside is that there isn't much of a restaurant choice here or mall but the food places are pretty good that they do have .
Brownwood is a very small town but it is very friendly. I would love to see more family activities added to the area.
It is a great small town to raise a family in. It could use some more activities for kids to do. Overall, it is a good family town.
Brownwood is a rural, retirement community with little for the younger population to enjoy. The only benefit to this is that the community is tight knit and we really do try to help our locals, and expansion is trying to occur in the retail/restaurant market.
There are a lot of parks, churches, and activities for families and college students! It is a great place to live, and housing is super cheap!
Very well maintained city. Great public works always keeping the place in shape. I would like to see more athletics for older people.
Brownwood, Texas is where I was raised with southern hospitality and friendly atmosphere the perfect setting to raise a family with values and morals. However, I would love to see more job opportunities in this area to support the family friendly atmosphere.
I am attending Howard Payne university and must say it has been one of the best experiences of my life. Brownwood is a growing town and there is plenty to do there between classes. I have totally enjoyed Brownwood.
I love this place! The people are friendly, the restaurants are nice, and it has all the perks of a small town without the big city traffic. I love it here!
Brownwood is a small town. I have found that Brownwood is a very hospitable town. Everyone is very nice. The lake is beautiful and has many activity's. Not very many big name stores here in Brownwood, but a lot of smaller and self owned businesses. The mall is small but hey at least we have one. The mall has a movie theater in it. Recently they have opened up the lyric theater. The have put on several plays since the opening and have had rave reviews. Brownwood has many parks throughout the town from small to big. The town has many places to eat weather it be fast food you are interested in or a sit down restaurant. Overall Brownwood is a great place to live or to visit.
Safe family community, but schools do need improvement. It is a small town that is growing rapidly, opening new job opportunities for residents.
I personally think yes there is crime here but there is crime everywhere you go no matter where you go. The police work hard and are on patrol constantly and keeping crime off the street the best they can.
I enjoy it in Brownwood Texas because it feels like home and their motto is Brownwood where it Feels Like Home.
Being a small town, everyone knows everyone so crime is pretty low. When we get vandalism sprees it is most often bored teens up to no good. I believe the whole town operates in a very routine way and any deviations are noted. Law enforcement does their job, sadly the court system here is very small town in that they pretty much do whatever they want. Recently a minority was given a lifetime sentence for attacking his fiances daughter which is horrible and he got life which I think is extreme considering we have repeating sex offenders or murders who get sentenced to less. With a small town mentality I believe it is more on who you know that justice which is sad.
Living in Brownwood Texas is ok. It is a small conservative community and has a great neighboring high school that is rated pretty well. If it wasn't for my family living here, I do believe I would move, but the homey family oriented atmosphere keeps us here. Thankfully the town has been steadily growing and I hope it continues to do so without the crime rate going up.
the crime rate in brownwood is relatively low, the population is too small for someone to get away with breaking and entering or many petty crimes. If the homeowner/ shop owner does not catch you in the act, the police or a neighbor surely will.
brownwood is a very small town in south central texas, it is very slow and everybody will know your name if you stay here long enough, the public school district is decent and there is a very good private baptist university down the road. living here is great if you are looking for cheap living, and a change of pace from the city. There are many forms of employment here in brownwood, most in the form of intense labor, and long work days, the pay is great but be ready to use your hands.
The police officers may not always be quick to respond, but crime is not very high in Brownwood. We rarely hear about fatal crimes. The officers allow me to feel safe in my little community.
My town, Brownwood, may not have all the options a big city does, but its a place to call home. The community is small, which is nice to have because not everyone is a stranger. People who live here are friendly.
