Stillman House Museum

Another must see in Brownsville is the Stillman House Museum at 1305 E. Washington. Charles Stillman was a Riverboat Captain along with Captains King and Kenedy who operated the Steamboats plying the River as far west as Rio Grande City and Roma. King and Kenedy received large tracts of land in lieu of payment for transporting troops during the Mexican War. Two counties immediately North of the Valley bear their names. Mr. Stillman enjoyed the River too much to leave it.
