    Brunswick, MO - $10 1902 Plain Back Fr. 626 The First NB Ch. # 4083
    A very scarce note from this north central Missouri community that styles itself as "The Pecan Capital of Missouri." That boast is a far cry from the original intent of those who settled here, which was to make this community, which was occupied by the French in 1723-1726, the trading capital of the new French territory of La Louisiana. The settlement, which sat on the Missouri River near the mouth of the Grand River, was the first in modern day Missouri. Following the departure of the French after the Louisiana Purchase, the town was settled by an Englishman, James Keyte, who named it Brunswick after the town of the same name in England. For several years the community thrived as a transportation and commercial hub, but a change in the course of the Grand River necessitated the relocation of the community. The delay in acquiring railroad access until 1867, along with the decline of previously slave driven agriculture, doomed the town to insignificance. PMG Very Fine 20.
