Georgia Historical Marker:


Brunswick's first settler came to Georgia in 1738 with Oglethorpe's regiment. He was granted 500 acres at this place, on which he establish- ed his plantation.

Several tabby buildings erected by him stood nearby and a military outpost was maintained here.

In 1741 Indians from Florida raided his plan- tation, causing 750 pounds damage. The Indians killed or wounded some of the soldiers, while others were taken prisoners.
