New Town Brunswick
1771. New Town Brunswick is almost as old as Old Town Brunswick but is not listed on the National Register of Historic Places. General Oglethorpe founded the city of Brunswick in 1771. The city is named after the ancestral home of King George II- Braunsweig, Germany. The city was practically destroyed during the Civil War, as community leaders and Confederate soldiers set fire to the city to keep it out of Union hands. Slowly, the city rebuilt itself. The section of Brunswick north of ÒGÓ Street is referred to as New Town. It follows the same grid pattern as Old Town. The area is filled with fascinating churches, company villages, historic cemeteries and interesting private homes.
