General Information

On September 16-18, 2015, Tarleton State University will join with Howard Payne University and the Brown County Museum of History in commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the establishment of Camp Bowie in Brownwood. Camp Bowie, commissioned for construction in Brown County on September 19, 1940, was the first major military project in Texas during WWII. It was a major training location for the famed 36th Division, and over 250,000 troops served or trained at the facility from 1940-1946. The site also included a large German POW camp.

We have arranged for tours of the Camp Bowie area to be provided during the event by City and Rural Rides. Once the website is available, registration will include the fees and times. This will provide an opportunity for a guided tour of the main area of the camp including structures still in place.

An official opening of the new exhibit will be held on Thursday evening September 17 followed by a banquet commemorating the anniversary. More details on the program of these events will be forthcoming, but invitations are being extended to dignitaries to participate. The plans for the banquet include a color guard, music, a video presentation and more.

The event is connected to the Brownwood Reunion which will be held on September 18-20. On Saturday, September 19, the Museum will sponsor a Living History camp from WWII, tours of the new exhibit, and a memorial at Camp Bowie.
