Facts for Renters
From the get-go, Brownsburg was very educationally focused. This town was the first to create a log cabin for a school. Soon after, many surrounding towns and cities took note and did the same, which made log cabins a common structure for schools. Prior to Brownsburg school, many were made out of brick. The institution was non-discriminatory, and had students between the age of six and 43.
Brownsburg was named after James Brown, the town's first settler. When Brown came to the area, it was mainly undiscovered. Only hunters and trappers would occasionally visit this barren place.
Brownsburg first began as a township, and was later divided into Brownsburg and the Lincoln township, which was named after President Lincoln to show support for the Civil War.
In 1848, the town hosted its first election. Ten votes were cast by men in the town.
