College Station, Texas: Higher Education and Museums
College Station, named in 1877 after a nearby train station, originally sprung up to serve the needs of the faculty and administration at Texas A&M University. Texas A&M is still the focal point of the town, but a wealth of other attractions have moved in to cater to the roughly 96,000 full-time residents and a student body 46,000 strong.
On campus, you can peruse the galleries at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, which offer a behind-the-scenes peek at the life and hair of the 41st president. The neighboring city of Bryan is home to a quaint downtown lined with antique shops, boutiques, and restaurants. Swing by the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History to see 250 preserved wildlife specimens, browse an exhibit of Native American pottery, and examine the bones and fossils of elephants, bison, and cretaceous marine life.
