About The Civic Center

The Brazoria Heritage Foundation was founded in 2004 to save the “Old School” in downtown Brazoria from the wrecking ball when the school district moved the students to a new location.   The buildings have been renovated and put to good use for and by the citizens of the area.  The whole complex is commonly know as the Brazoria Civic Center and houses the Brazoria Community Museum, Brazoria Chamber of Commerce, Brazos Valley Railroad Society, Brazoria Lions Club, Brazoria County Cavalry, with rentals by Brazoria County for WIC and Vaccination Clinic, White Tiger Taekwando, Dance Academy of Worship, Masters Academy of Fine Arts (MAFA), and other groups.   The Foundation is funded by private donations.  Two major events are sponsored by BHF each year, the Brazoria Heritage Celebration the 1st Saturday of every March and the Heritage Ball (“Santa Ana Ball”) each July.  Both are unique events referring back to actual events in Brazoria’s history.

Several buildings are available for rentals for various venues:
