Do you have a history with Edwards and/or Visintainer schools? Did you attend or were you employed at either building? Both buildings will be razed in 2020 and the Brunswick Area Historical Society is trying to preserve and recreate a portion of them with a new building at Heritage Farm, 4613 Laurel Road.
Once the buildings start to come down, we will be selling bricks with certificates so you can keep a physical memory of the building. But in the meantime, we need to raise funds to build the new structure.
We are partnering with Brunswick High graduate Chad Gibson and his team at Bunker Hill Golf Course for our golf outing fundraiser.
If you can devote an hour or two of your time to network with others and spread the word about our golf outing next spring, we can use your help.
To succeed, Chad is asking us to find additional volunteers to accomplish our goals. If you are interested in being a part of preserving our local history, and want to make an impact on our community, Chad says that with a little bit of help from an army of volunteers we can make a significant difference.
Please Join us at 3:30 p.m. June 9 at Bunker Hill to learn more about what we have planned and to decide if you’d like to be part of this great event. We encourage you to invite others to the meeting and spread the word. We greatly appreciate any and all help.
Our plan is to save the front entrances of the Edwards building and move them to Heritage Farm. We will incorporate them into a new building where we will recreate an old classroom and house historic school documents. UPDATE: We have received approval on the new building and plans are moving ahead at full speed. We will be announcing some fund raisers in the near future, but you can help any time by donating using the Donate Now button below.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The weather is finally warming up a bit so it's time to start thinking about the Farmers Market. It will open on June 9th and run through Oct. 13, 2019. Most, if not all of the vendors will be returning and we've added some new folks as well. See you all soon!
If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please call 330-441-0292 or send an email to brunswickAreaHistory@gmail.com.
Our regular meeting will be held at the Heritage Farm barn at 6pm.
Brunswick Farmers Market will be up and running from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Sunday at the farm, 4613 Laurel Road, starting June 9.
Yes, we’ll have those root beer floats back again.
Come and see trucks of all kinds for kids and vehicle lovers to get up close and personal. We’ll couple that with our children’s Costume Parade so the kids can wear those Halloween costumes or come as their favorite princess or hero. It’s all free, so families can’t go wrong.
Dress up your puppy or just come to watch. Last year’s event was absolutely amazing – those pet owners know how to get those doggies dressed to the nines!
It’s a special event we know everyone looks forward to. We’re hoping to have our belly dancers and the Brunswick Rec Line Dancers back again – they were a big hit last year. The event is held rain or shine. Let's all hope for better weather than last year!
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and provide more to the citizens of Brunswick (including the school project.)
