Brownsville has been home to numerous denominations since the town’s founding in 1823.  Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Baptist, Catholic, African Methodist Episcopal, Church of Christ, and Jewish have all found active parishioners in the community.  The Methodist, Baptist, and Presbyterian congregations built churches in Brownsville between 1831 and 1833, with the Episcopalian congregation following in 1834. A Catholic congregation was established around 1870, and from the late 19th century through the mid-20th century, Brownsville had a strong Jewish community.  Of these religious denominations, Temple Adas Israel and Christ Episcopal Church are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
