Brule Field, Navasota TXSpectator seating at Brule Field
An amphitheater type football stadium was constructed in 1934 using WPA funds. The stadium was designed by City Manager, R.J. Brule and the field was named in his honor. Mr. Brule is remembered today as being a resourceful manager who used available resources to make what the city needed. He negotiated several beneficial WPA grants for the City of Navasota.
Brule Field was used by the high school team until 2006 when a new, modern facility opened. Today Navasota Intermediate School uses the facility for their games.
Note: All available records list completion date as 1934 and agency as WPA, but the WPA was not formed until 1935. Any further clarifying information is appreciated.
