Brewton is a city in Escambia County, Alabama, United States. At the 2000 census the population was 5,498. The city is the county seat of Escambia County.

In May 1861, the first train arrived at a hastily built station at the site of what would become Brewton. The station master was Edmund Troupe Brewton.

The Civil War was not kind to the new Brewton community. Rail lines were severed, and nearby the first small lumber mills were damaged or destroyed. However, when peace came, those who returned or arrived rebuilt the Brewton economy began a school and established small businesses. Into the 1870s a new European demand for lumber opened the way for creation of numerous timber and lumber operations. The Conecuh-Escambia river system became a timber artery to the Gulf.
