Here is a History page for Bryan.

The area that is now Bryan was part of a land grant to Moses Austin by Spain in 1821. It was colonized by Stephen F. Austin, his son. Austin, Texas is named after his son also. First established in 1859 on 640 acres, Bryan now has over 20,000 acres (32.3 sq mi). Named for William Joel Bryan, who was a nephew of Stephen F. Austin, the Texas pioneer. His family came with Austin when he first came to start a colony in Texas. Bryan did not really begin to emerge until 1860 when the Houston & Texas Central Railroad arrived.

The county seat for Brazos County was moved from Boonville to Bryan in 1866 when the local residents voted in the change. Bryan was incorporated in 1871. College Station, nearby, is home to Texas A&M University, which is the oldest public institution of higher education in the state. The University is an important part of the community which attracts a broad economic base. There is much agriculture here.
