Brunswick

It was founded in 1771 by the Province of Georgia and incorporated on February 22, 1856. Plans for the city's streets and squares were laid out in grid-style following James Oglethorpe's Savannah Plan. In 1789, George Washington proclaimed Brunswick one of the five original ports of entry for the United States.

The Port of Brunswick is the fourth-largest automobile port in the eastern United States. The city's economy encompasses manufacturing, agricultural processing, and bulk cargoes. Tourism constitutes the largest industry in Brunswick and the Golden Isles. Brunswick is the center of Georgia's shrimp and crab industry, attributing to the city's nickname, the "Shrimp Capital of the World."

The headquarters facility of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security, is a vital part of Brunswick's economy. The facility, located 5 miles (8 km) north of the central business district of the city, is adjacent to Brunswick Golden Isles Airport, which provides commercial air service to the region.
