Brunswick hosts the majority of Glynn County's "public house" needs. These buildings were built during the 1940's to meet the war effort for ship building, then were converted to low income housing. Some of these units were built in the middle of existing neighborhoods, which now create pockets of instability in older neighborhoods that are nearing a century in age.
But, due to the colonial history, and intracoastal waterway access, There are neighborhood areas that are very attractive with leafy tree lined streets and Atlantic coast views. Victorian erea architecture fills the the entire "southend" which was formaly populated by shipping barrons of the late 18th early 19th century. The district now is being re-invented by urbanites moving to Brunswick for the small town feel. Homes are being renovated and not removed, thanks to the historic designation of the area.
