“U 91 : Brunswick County, Virginia — The Original Home of Brunswick Stew.”

“According to local tradition, while Dr. Greed Haskins and several friends were on a hunting trip in Brunswick County in 1828, his camp cook, Jimmy Matthews, hunted squirrels for a stew. Matthews simmer the squirrels with butter, onions, and stale bread, and seasoning, thus creating the dish known as Brunswick stew. Recipes for Brunswick stew have changed over time as chicken has replaced squirrel and vegetables have been added, but the stew remains thick and rich. Other states have made similar claims but Virginia is the first. (Department of Historic Resources, 1987)”
