Historic Brusly records dating to 1901 were recently preserved with funds through an Entergy Community Grant. Louisiana Binding Services, Inc., of New Orleans was contracted for the preservation process. The records include the original proclamation of incorporation signed by Governor William Wright Heard and minutes of Town meetings from 1901 through July 1952.

In addition to the books which are in the Centennial Room at the Brusly Town Hall, a microfilm copy of the documents is housed in the West Baton Rouge Parish Library in Port Allen.
