We know these are challenging times, but we are in need of funds to finish our building project. This building will be used to house artifacts from Brunswick schools from the 1800s to the present. Please click the button to donate whatever you can. Even just a few dollars can be a big help! Remember, we are a 501c3 organization and any donations are tax deductible
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. 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!
There are several fund raisers in the planning stages so keep watching this page for details:

This amazing quilt features actual photographs of Brunswick locations and historical events. We are raffling it off all summer. Tickets are available at the Farmer's Market every Sunday and only cost $5.00 a piece.
The drawing will be held Oct 4th at noon at the Big Red Barn during the Farmer's Market. All tickets purchased are also eligible for a monthly drawing for a gift basket held on the last Sunday of each month (June, July, August & September) at 2pm at the Farmer's Market. Gift basket winners will have their ticket put back in the hopper to remain eligible for the quilt.
This wonderful work of art was created and donated by Karen Spirakus, a former Brunswick school teacher! Thank you for generous gift and amazing talent!!
You can also purchase tickets online by clicking the Add to Cart button below. We have to add $.25 per ticket to the price to cover card processing fees. You can select the number of tickets on that screen. You will receive a scan of the tickets, via email, showing your numbers.
Farmer's Market will be held from 11am to 2 pm, beginning June 14 and running every Sunday until October 4th.

Sadly, First Christian Church on Center Rd recently closed after 184 years. The church has been sold to Tri-C, which is good, but it is going to be demolished. However, the pastor and members have generously donated a number of precious artifacts to the Historical Society.
