Brownsville is a borough in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, United States, founded in 1785 a few years after the resumption of westward migration at the site of a trading post near Redstone Old Fort along Nemacolin's Trail. Brownsville is located 35 miles (56 km) southeast of Pittsburgh along the east bank of the Monongahela River, and until the 1850s steel boom-because it sat atop the first water routes west-totally eclipsed Pittsburgh in importance, size and population.From its founding, well into the 19th century, as the first reachable population center west of the Alleghenies barrier range on the Mississippi watershed, the borough became quickly grew into an industrial center, market town, transportation hub, outfitting center, and river boat-building powerhouse. It was a gateway destination for emigrants heading west to the Ohio Country when a trading post, and the new USA's Northwest Territory and their 'legal successors' for travelers heading westwards on the various Emigrant Trails both to the Near West and later far west from its founding until well into the 1850s. As outfitting center, the borough provided the markets for the small scale industries in the surrounding counties-and also, quite a few in Maryland shipping goods over the pass by mule-train via the Cumberland Narrows toll-route.Brownsville from a became a major center for building steamboats through the 19th century, producing 3,000 boats by 1888.The borough developed in the late 19th century as a railroad yard and coking center, with other industries related to the rise of steel in the Pittsburgh area. It reached a peak of population of more than 8,000 in 1940. Postwar development occurred in suburbs, as was typical of the time. The restructuring of the railroad and steel industries caused a severe loss of jobs and population in Brownsville, beginning in the 1970s. The borough has a population of 2331 as of 2010.
