The river is home to hundreds of species of fish, including 11 species of catfish, and the alligator snapping turtle. The Hatchie River was named by the Nature Conservancy as one of the "great places" to save. The Hatchie is also designated as a "scenic river" under the Tennessee Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.

 

 

 

 

 

History

Brownsville's history is strongly connected with agriculture in the Mid-South. The town is notable for its many well-preserved antebellum homes and multi-generational family owned farms.

Tabernacle Campground, home to the yearly "camp-meeting" for descendants of the Rev. Howell Taylor, was established in 1826, soon after Brownsville was founded.

Brownsville's synagogue, Temple Adas Israel, was built in 1882 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building is believed to be the oldest synagogue in Tennessee, and is a rare example of a synagogue built in theGothic Revival style.

Contemporary music

In the song "Delta Dawn" (recorded by Tanya Tucker and others), the lyric "All the folks around Brownsville say she's crazy" is a reference to Brownsville, Tennessee. Credit for the writing of the song is given to songwriter Alex Harvey and former child rockabilly star Larry Collins.

 

 

Tina Turner

According to a 1990s interview with singer Tina Turner's mother, Zelma Bullock, the singer was born Anna Mae Bullock in a sharecroppers' cabin in Nutbush on November 26, 1939. Her father was farm overseer and she spent her childhood in the Knoxville area, Nutbush, Ripley and Brownsville.

 

 

The Mindfield

 
The Mindfield

 

“The Mindfield” is the creation and life’s work of Brownsville artist Billy Tripp. The structure was begun in 1989 and will continue to evolve until Tripp's death, at which point it will become the site of his interment. Included in the network of steel are individual pieces representing various events and periods of Tripp's life, especially the death of his father, Rev. Charles Tripp, in 2002. One of the latest additions, a water tower salvaged from a defunct factory in Western Kentucky, was dismantled, transported to Brownsville, and reconstructed single-handedly by the artist. It now stands as a memorial to Tripp’s parents as well as a testimonial to his current life, his belief in the inherent beauty of our world, and the importance of tolerance in our communities and governmental systems.

Tripp’s book, The Mindfield Years, is a further representation of his life told through the voices of three main characters and their efforts to find meaning, purpose, and contentment in the existence to which they were born. Written in stream of consciousness style, the novel contains elements of short story, poetry, philosophy, and psychology intermingled into a multi-layered yet deceptively simple tale. Tripp is currently at work on volume two of this series, his “Goodbye”, and volume three, which is yet to be titled.
