Welcome to East Brainerd! Come Thrive With Us!

In 1967, East Brainerd meant the area along East Brainerd Road, then barely a two-lane country road branching of Robert. E Lee Highway. Originally, the community was called Concord. This name lasted until its main road changed from Bird’s Mill to Each Brainerd following some community consolidation. Several families occupied a small neighborhood where The Terrace is now and the other side of Gunbarrel Road was all wooded area.

East Brainerd = shopping, shopping, shopping. From your average department stores to small, local boutiques, you will have everything you need in just a short drive or even a walk. There are plenty of family-friendly activities, including bowling, movies, and escape rooms.
