Settled in 1628 by Thomas Purchase and other fishermen, the area was first known by its Indian name, Pejepscot. In 1639, Purchase placed his settlement under the protection of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. During King Philip's War in 1676, Pejepscot was burned and abandoned, although Fort Andros was built on the ruins during King William's War. In 1714, the newly inhabited town was incorporated as Brunswick. Today, it is home to Bowdoin College.
