Brunswick on the Grand
As the official Pecan Capital of Missouri, our area is known for its top-quality production of distinctively flavorful native pecans, specially sourced from ingredients manufacturers, exported internationally, and sold locally in retail shops.
Sew Sweet, a nationally-recognized quilting shop with retreat facilities, participates in the American Genius Highway Quilt Trail off US Highway 36 and the Ozark Quilting Trail off US Route 50.
Given our location on the Grand River, only three miles from the Missouri River, Brunswick offers outdoor enthusiasts access to camping, fishing, hunting, and trapping, as well as boating and kayaking opportunities.
Our community also intersects with multiple points in history. Lewis and Clark passed through here in 1804. The Pottawatomie Indian Tribe crossed our waters in 1838 during the Trail of Death march. And Brunswick’s community grew in numbers as our German ancestors immigrated to the US and moved westward into Chariton County, now recognized as the northwestern-most county of the German Heritage Corridor of Missouri.
A rural Missouri destination, our vibrant town welcomes former residents, families and community groups for day trips and weekend getaways.
