  • Home of Brunswick Stew

    Home of Brunswick Stew

    In 1988, the Virginia General Assembly issued a decree naming Brunswick County the home of Brunswick Stew, proclaiming it to be the place of origin of this "astonishing gastronomic miracle". The origin of this tasty concoction can be traced back to 1828. Each year on the second Saturday of October, crews gather from miles around to stir up their own version of Brunswick Stew. Men known as stewmasters tend huge cauldrons, stirring the contents with boat oars, cooking up hundreds of quarts to be judged. These stews are very thick, often not declared done until an oar can stand upright in the center. Come join us and discover your favorite version of this Brunswick delicasy.

  • Lake Country

    Lake Country

    Brunswick County is situated in the region known as Lake Country. Lake Gaston is a hydroelectric reservoir built also for flood control and recreational enjoyment. The lake, covering over 20,000 acres with 350 miles of shoreline, offers a wide variety of water sports. It is a favorite vacation spot largely due to its proximity to I-85 and I-95 and being almost equidistant from Richmond, VA and Raleigh, NC.
