Edelweiss

Edelweiss is an area in College Station, Texas. College Station is a city in Brazos County, Texas, situated in East Central Texas in the heart of the Brazos Valley, in the center of the region known as Texas Triangle. College Station is home to the main campus of Texas A&M University, the flagship institution of the Texas A&M University System. The city owes both its name and existence to the university’s location along a railroad. Texas A&M’s triple designation as a Land-, Sea-, and Space-Grant institution reflects the broad scope of the research endeavors it brings to the city, with ongoing projects funded by agencies such as NASA, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research.

Due largely to the presence of Texas A&M University, College Station was named by Money magazine in 2006 as the most educated city in Texas, and the 11th most educated city in the United States.

Districts in College Station:

Northgate: Northgate is a mixed-use district north of Texas A&M University that features a combination of businesses, restaurants, apartments, churches, and entertainment. It is a vibrant part of the city known for its eclectic mix of restaurants and bars. A large portion of the stores, bars, and restaurants in Northgate are frequented and patronized by Texas A&M students, and a lot of the establishments employ A&M students as well.

Wolf Pen Creek District: Wolf Pen Creek District is a large commercial development adjacent to Post Oak Mall and between two of the city’s main commercial thoroughfares: Earl Rudder Freeway and Texas Avenue. The area consists of a greenway with trails, a $1.5 million amphitheater and entertainment area, a small lake, the Arctic Wolf Ice Skating Complex, and is the home of the Arts Council of the Brazos Valley.

Wellborn District: Wellborn became a community in 1867 as a construction camp on the Houston and Texas Central Railroad. The town’s name has been attributed to a well at the construction camp, a foreman named E.W. Wellborn, or a landowner named W.W. Willburn.

Post Oak Mall was the city’s first mall and it is currently the largest mall in the Brazos Valley. The 82-acre (330,000 m2) mall is home to 125 stores; its opening on February 17, 1982, helped create the impetus for growing economic and commercial developments for College Station. It is currently the largest taxpayer in College Station and the second largest in the Brazos Valley, even though the anchor stores are free-standing units that are privately owned and taxed separate from the mall proper. Over 75 percent of retail sales in the Brazos Valley come from sales at the mall’s stores.
