Brown's Island was created when the Haxall Canal was extended west to the Tredegar Iron Works.

Encircled by the waterways that provided power and transportation to flour mills, foundries, and paper companies, Brown's Island has been at the center of Richmond's industrial activities for more than 200 years. Remains of Civil War-era bridges can be seen from its shores, and the CSX Railroad still runs along its southern edge.
