Cities and Towns

Located on Farm Road 1578 eighteen miles west of Corsicana in Navarro County Texas. It was established before 1900. Two schools were in operation there by the early 1900s - a school for whites with an enrollment of 65 and one for blacks with an enrollment of 54. In the mid 1930s Brushy Prairie had a church, a gin, a blacksmith shop, a school, a cemetery, and several stores. After World War II many of the residents moved away, the school was consolidated with that of Frost, and most of the businesses closed. By the mid-1970s only a church, a cemetery, and scattered houses remained. In 1990 Brushy Prairie was a dispersed rural community.
