The Brunswick Old Town Historic District encompasses the site of the colonial British town of Brunswick. Named after the family of King George III of England, the town was laid out in 1771 and retains its original plan known as "Old Town". It has an outstanding collection of late 19th century residential and public buildings. Among the many examples are Hazelhurst-Taylor House in Hanover Square and Mahoney-McGarvey House on Reynolds Street. The town retains many of its original sidewalks paved with unusual hexagonal stone tiles. It remains an exciting and inviting destination especially for history buffs. Included in the Old Town National Historic District, the site features a rich diversity of architectural styles of homes and commercial buildings of the Victorian era. Enjoy beautiful oak-lined streets surviving from 1771, lined with unique shops, boutiques and galleries.
