This town consisted of a small group of old buildings hugging the highway on either side. By 1941, a logging-donkey yard, filled with donkey engines, steam shovels, and other heavy equipment, seemed to be waiting for a period of activity that may never return. There is no visible evidence of these lumber equipment graveyards along the highway today. In Brady is a Douglas fir tree farm and scattered residences. The name was given by Northern Pacific Railway officials in 1917, for Emily Brady, from whom the railway acquired a right-of-way. Earlier names were Woods Crossing and Juno.
