Brunswick Stew

Brunswick, Georgia or Brunswick County, Virginia - who had the first Brunswick stew? One of six roadside historical markers going into Brunswick County, VA boldly makes the claim for Virginia. The marker proclaims that the stew originated in 1828 from “Uncle Jimmy Matthews”, a camp cook for a Dr. Creed Haskins (a member of the Virginia legislature). The Matthews stew combined squirrel, butter, onions, stale bread and seasoning in a cast iron pot cooked over a wood fire.
