It began in 1876 with the establishment of a school with a most unwieldy name: The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas. The nearby railroad stop known as College Station grew into a town and then a thriving city; and the more realistically renamed Texas A&M became the seventh largest college in the country. This Images of America entry documents the astonishing growth and diversification of a locale that now encompasses the George Bush Presidential Library, the Texas Motor Speedway, and Kyle Field. A striking pictorial history; a natural for the series.
