Brunswick Springs
 


  Brunswick lies in the eastern part of the county, in lat. 44º 43', long. 5º 18', and is bounded northeast by Bloomfield, east by the Connecticut river, southwest by Maidstone, and west by Ferdinand. It has an area of 14,617 acres, originally chartered by Benning Wentworth, October 13th, 1761. 

  The surface of the town is rough and picturesque. The Nulhegan river runs across the northwestern corner of the town, this being the most rapid portion of the stream. Paul stream is a beautiful stream of pure and limpid water, taking its rise in the towns of Granby and Ferdinand.  In its course through Brunswick it affords many good mill privileges. Upon this stream the first mills in Brunswick were built by Ithiel Cargill. Wheeler stream has two branches, North and South, that unite about a half mile from its junction with the Connecticut. There are eight ponds in the town, viz. Cranberry, Little Bog, Dennis, Paul Stream, Tuttle, Wheeler, Little Walker and Mineral ponds. The Brunswick springs, perhaps, more than anything, else, have given the town a name and a place among the resorts of summer tourists. The springs are celebrated for their high medicinal qualities. In 1869, to furnish accommodations for the guests drawn hither, the Brunswick Springs House was erected by C. &. E.F. Bailey, and has since enjoyed a liberal and increasing patronage. The house has accommodations for one hundred guests, and is located on the west bank of the Connecticut, two miles from the Grand Trunk Railway station of North Stratford, N. H.  Directly in front of the house is the beautiful lakelet, Mineral Pond, noted for its lilies. About one hundred feet in the rear of the house are the springs, six in number, and each pouring forth a quantity of water quite distinct in analysis from the others. Several beautiful groves of white pine trees are in the immediate vicinity.
