Brandenburg Real Estate & Information

Brandenburg Real Estate & Information

For thousands of years, Native Americans frequented the area now known as Brandenburg in Meade County. The fact that Native Americans occupied the area at different periods is evident by the huge amount of burial grounds, artifacts and shell mounds found along the Ohio River. Native Americans found Meade County, specifically the Brandenburg area, desirable because of the abundant wildlife and food in the area, including nuts and berries. However, the exact tribes that were located in the area is the subject of debate. Some are certain that the Native Americans who settled in the area were closely linked to the Shawnee and Cherokee tribes.

Brandenburg got its start when citizens of Meade County felt that Claysville was not a good location to be the seat of justice. On January 8, 1825, authorized by the General Assembly, Solomon Brandenburg’s Landing and Ferry became the seat of justice of Meade County. The town was later renamed simply, Brandenburg. In April of 1825 five commissioners were appointed to provide a courthouse in the town square.
