Old Signs In Downtown Bryan Texas

By
Real Estate Agent with BCR Realtors

I love going to the downtown area in Bryan. Not only does it bring back many fond memories but the revitalization there has made it a great place to go for a night out, lunch, or just a peaceful walk . There are still a few of the old hand painted signs on the sides and rears of many of the antique buildings in downtown Bryan.

We actually bought garden seed from the company in this building back in the late 1970's. The business is no longer there but the sign remains me of the experiences we had there. I can still remember the smells in this old feed store.

Old signs like this have such a nostalgic feel, Trey.  It takes you back to a simpler time...

Trey,

The paint still appears very good and easy to read.  We have some old buildings with painted signs on the side that are becoming quite faded. 

Great photo of it.

A friend of mine calls these ghost signs, a reminder of the past.  I like seeing them.

Isn't it funny the things that we remember, like the smell of the old feed store?  Your comment reminded me of sitting watching my dad feeding the cattle on the farm.

The old signs are so interesting to see.  I love the history in them.
