Brisco (or Briscoe) was a small town in Pine Township, Warren County, Indiana. It began in the 1850s and gained a one-room school in 1856, which operated until 1929. In 1930 the school building became a general store run for more than 50 years by local resident Jim Marquess. Never more than a tiny hamlet, Brisco almost entirely disappeared during the 20th century and now no longer appears on county maps, though the USGS cites it, and a cemetery northeast of town still bears the name.
Brisco was located a quarter mile east of the intersection of County Road 650 North with U.S. Route 41, about 9 miles north-northwest of the county seat of Williamsport.
