Brunswick is located in northeastern Ohio in northern Medina County
about 20 miles south-southwest of Cleveland
. The population estimate for July 1, 1998 was 32,634, an increase of 4,416 since 1990.
The town was first laid out in the late 18th century by the Connecticut Land Company which purchased 3 million acres from the U.S. government which in turn had received the land as part of the "Connecticut Western Reserve" grant from King James I of England to the Plymouth Company on November 3, 1630. The first purchasers of land from the Company didn't arrive, however, until after the War of 1812.
The town's name is attributed to the heavy German influence here. Translated literally, it means "Brown Market".
Area recreation includes trips to Cleveland Lakefront State Park on the shores of Lake Erie and golf outings to Brunswick Hills Golf Course.
