June 2: Public meeting to update residents about redevelopment projects in the borough. See municipal calendar for details.

Welcome to the official website for the Borough of Brownsville, PA.

With the Monongahela River, rail lines and highways, including the historic National Road, coming together in our town, Brownsville is a prime candidate for redevelopment and development opportunities.

Experience the Mon, Pennsylvania’s 2013 River of the Year. Explore our “treasure trove” of historical landmarks: America’s first cast iron bridge, the 22-room Nemacolin Castle and tree-lined streets of 19th century homes, historic churches and cemeteries. Envision our downtown as it was during its heyday as a ship-building center for flatboats, keelboats and steamboats; a starting point for the Westward Expansion and Whiskey Rebellion; the oldest commercial district west of the Alleghenies; and an economic engine with a once-vibrant downtown capable of supporting four theaters.

Present-day Brownsville is home to nearly 2,500 residents, who enjoy a family-oriented lifestyle with numerous churches, youth sports leagues, public library, two fire departments, ambulance service, community organizations and affordable commercial and residential properties, set midway between Pittsburgh and the Laurel Highlands’ ski resorts.

Located at the westernmost tip of Fayette County, Brownsville is a one-square-mile riverfront town with a wealth of resources, including a wharf with public boat launch, and abundant opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs and new residents.
