Queen Square, named in honor of the queens of England, is the only true square in Brunswick located within the downtown commercial district. Other smaller, so-called “pocket parks”, such as Jekyll and Machen Squares, were originally named “Place” and were not considered true squares until the names changed on city maps in the 1930s.

Although the square itself has not undergone renovation at this time, it does contain one of Brunswick’s most recognizable landmarks, Historic City Hall. The stately Richardson-Romanesque building is still in use today as a municipal court facility, and a venue for some of the city’s most elegant celebrations and receptions.
