Plymouth in Amador County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Benny Brown Arena
For nearly fifty years thereafter, as Amador County’s hometown rodeo cowboy, Benny made numerous winning appearances all across the west in professional rodeo cowboy events and later as a distinguished competitor on the senior pro rodeo circuit in steer wrestling.
A man’s man who always took time to help younger people getting started in ranching or rodeo, Benny’s friendly winning spirit regardless of the adversity and whether in rodeo, ranching or life itself, is living inspiration to all who knew him.
“I’m doing so good, if I was doing any better
I couldn’t stand it.”
Erected 1998 by The Friends of Benny Brown, Jr.
