The Sugar Land Railroad is in Brazoria County for the rest of it's route. From FM 521 South bound you should turn right [West] on County Road 42 at Sandy Point and follow the winding road until it crosses Oyster Creek via a cement bridge. Imediatley after the bridge [West side] is the Sugar Land Railroad. This is the location of the town of English. There is nothing of the town that remains. Further west on County Road 42 is the community of Brushy. Residents of this black community produced buttermilk and delivered their product to the Sugar Land Railroad depot at English for distribution. Some history accounts claim Rosharon was the 'Buttermilk Stop'. A lot of Arcola residents have ancestors from the Brushy community.
