CULTURE, CHARM, & CHARACTER

The Provincial Council of the Royal Province of Georgia founded Brunswick in 1771. 

Brunswick is laid out in traditional British fashion with a grid-like street pattern interspersed with pleasant squares and green parks. The original town plans remains in place today, with our English heritage reflected in the historic names of many of our streets and squares: Prince, Newcastle, Hanover, London, Norwich, George, Dartmouth and Gloucester.

Brunswick was named in honor of the ancestral birthplace of English King George III: Braunschweig, Germany. It’s deep natural harbor, sheltered from the open sea, has been in continuous use as a thriving seaport, recreational boat landing andas a homeport for shrimp boats for more than 200 years. Brunswick was the site of manufacture of the famed Liberty Ships during World War II. A model can be seen at Mary Ross Waterfront Park. 

Old Town Historic District has many fine examples of beautiful Victorian style buildings and homes, many built in the 1800’s.

The City of Brunswick Public Works Department has started placing Jersey Barriers in flood prone areas. Please use caution when driving downtown and watch for workers and/or newly placed barriers. Remember that even though water on a road may not look deep, it can be enough to stall your engine or cause electrical problems. Even if you have a high vehicle, your wake can cause additional flooding in a building!
Our farmers market will be closed this upcoming Thursday and Saturday. Stay safe. #hurricaneian #DiscoverBrunswick #goldenisles

Who loves data?! 

We at the DDA love data, and more importantly, these numbers! For obvious reasons the pandemic slowed some things down in 2020 and 2021, but 2022 is on its way to the moon 🚀🚀🚀
