Previously a town of wealthy shipbuilders, manufacturers and merchants, Brunswick is still a bustling center of activity. Today’s Brunswick has a vibrant main street, a very active arts and entertainment culture and of course, quintessential New England charm. Downtown revitalization efforts as well as ongoing local support make Brunswick one of Maine’s most livable towns. Amtrak’s Downeaster train service terminates at Brunswick Maine Street Station and connects the town to the Portland Transportation Center and Boston’s North Station.
