*Brunswick, Newaygo, Michigan -- a small unincorporated community in section 13 of the township at 43°25′59″N 86°2′25″W on M-120 at the eastern boundary with section 18 of Sheridan Township in Newaygo County. It was founded about 1875 as the point where the stage coach road met the Pere Marquette Railway line between Muskegon and White Cloud. Passengers and mail were taken north from here to Hesperia. The settlement was first called "County Line" and later "Marionville", after the first postmaster, Isaac Marion. However, the post office, established May 1881, was called "Dash." It was renamed Brunswick, Muskegon County in September 1897 and transferred to Newaygo County in April 1943. Originally there was a feed store in the community for farmers, and in the rear of that building there was a small post office. Both have since closed, and it is now served by the post office in neighboring Holton. St. Michaels Catholic Church and cemetery are located there. The community is located at the end of Brunswick Road. While the CSX rail line still runs through the town, train station has closed.
