The Stars At Night Season 1 Episode 3 – Brenham

This episode was a blast to film. We hope you enjoy it as well and make your way to Brenham and Washington county soon. It truly is a wonderful place. God Bless Texas. Correction: Texas was founded on March 2nd, 1836 not 1856 as I said in the video. I apology for the typo. But, I hope you all will still enjoy the rest of the epsiode.
