“Deep in the Heart of Texas”
Known worldwide as a giant frontier state, Texas’ true geographic heart can be found 12 miles north of the McCulloch County Courthouse on Highway 377. And, if that’s not enough, the sidewalk from the south entrance of the courthouse leads to the only location in the state where five highways intersect at one sign pole (183, 377, 190, 71 and 87).
These two statements make it awfully easy to tell people where we’re from when referring to McCulloch County or Brady, the county seat. Most times when meeting someone new we find that they know exactly where Brady, or McCulloch County, is because travelers across the state have passed through before.
Those fortunate enough can tell you all about our Hill Country hunting, fishing and shooting sports at Brady Lake, golf, bluebonnet tours, or the World Championship Barbecue Goat Cook-off. Hopefully, they will also speak highly of the friendly nature of those they met while in the area.
A great place to raise a family, McCulloch County boasts of three school districts that excel annually in athletics and academics. Consistent sales tax growth for the past several years documents a vibrant, growing economy during some rough economic times. Industrial sand mining and oil field equipment manufacturing provide cyclical economic booms, and rail service carries sand as well as grain crops to market.
Strong of heart in the Heart of Texas, we are proud to be alive and well in this great state! – County Judge Danny Neal
