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 gentleman in this photo is none other than N. H. Ballard. Professor Ballard served as Glynn county superintendent of schools from 1901 to 1919. Although the Ballard school is now closed the building remains and can be seen on Old Jesup Road. #throwbackthursday #discoverbrunswick #goldenisles
