Community Profiles: Brunswick

Brunswick Maine was settled in 1628 by various fishermen.  The Brunswick Maine area was first called by its Indian name, Pejepscot, meaning “the long, rocky rapids part of the river.” After undergoing many transformations, Brunswick was rebuilt again in 1727 and it became a prosperous Seaport where Bowdoin College was chartered in 1794.

Brunswick is located at the North end of Casco Bay, as well as the head of tide and head of navigation on the Androscoggin River. Its wealth of waterfront gives the discriminating waterfront buyer many choices. However, not all of Brunswick Maine's real estate is on the water. There are many bucolic neighborhoods nestled around the outskirts of downtown. You may even consider a historical Greek Revival or Italianate home right in the center of town.
