  1. I was wondering if your historical society has any historical information on the former Bryan Race track that was located on the northwest side of the city in the 1890s. The 1920 county history indicated it was built in 1892, it is shown on the 1894 county atlas but then not shown on the 1914 USGS 15 minute topo map. Let me know if you have any information on this former site.
