Imagine the year 1771, walking the street plan of grids and squares copied after Oglethorpe's Savannah plan. The city was named Brunswick to honor the royal duchy of Bransweig-Lunenbureg, Germany, home of the Hanoverian kings of England. The loyalists of Brunswick did not change the names of their streets after the Revolutionary war so names like Prince, Newcastle, London & Gloucester are still to be seen. Pick up a guide book for a walking or driving tour and explore the oak-shaded streets of Old Town. Guide books are available at Old City Hall, 1229 Newcastle Street.
