Lewis & Clarke, in 1804, saw this area and proclaimed it a good place for a village. It wasn't until about 1820 when James Keyte, a Brunswick, England, native and Methodist minister, built a cabin in nearby Keytesville and in 1836 founded Brunswick. To help promote the area, he offered free land to others, particularly to the boatmen, to settle here.
