Brownsville, Haywood County in West Tennessee is located off Exits 56, 60 and 66 on Interstate 40. Just follow the signs. It is less than an hour’s drive to Memphis, and about a 20-minute drive to Jackson.

Location is one of the many things that make Brownsville uniquely attractive to a versatile group of businesses and industries and to many families. Newcomers find less traffic, beautiful countryside, and more affordable living.

Because it is situated between Memphis and Jackson, the city and county have become a “bedroom” community for many, who only have a short commute to work, and for those who are ready for a slower pace and more breathing room in retirement. Younger families are coming to the community for the great schools and the other amenities that go along with smaller towns, unlike the hustle and bustle of big city life.

The Memphis area is considered a transportation hub for the 500-mile surrounding area, therefore, 75 percent of the nation’s major markets are within a day’s drive of Brownsville.
