Bremond Texas History:
Bremond is located on a portion Mary Peterson’s 1841 land grant. Her son, San Jacinto veteran John Peterson, sold the grant to William Keigwin in 1850. In 1869, Keigwin sold the land to William Baker and a group of investors. Investor William M. Rice surveyed and subdivided the tract. A right of way was granted to the Houston and Texas Central Railway Company in 1869; the first train arrived in 1870. Bremond incorporated and received a post office the same year. A large number of Polish immigrants arrived during the 1870s and began growing cotton. In 1878, Francis Marion Wootan dug a well three miles west of Bremond. After noticing that the water turned his dishes yellow, he had it analyzed and found it had a high mineral content. He began bottling it. Other wells were dug and Wooten Wells became a resort with four hotels, numerous businesses and hundreds of residents. Visitors traveled from Bremond by mule drawn wagon.
