Brunswick Heritage Museum Open During Railroad Days.

The Brunswick Heritage Museum will welcome visitors for free through our large red "Hall Doors" during Brunswick Railroad Days. This is a great time to visit and see our construction plans and progress.

Our elevator is out of service during construction, and visitors must use our stairs to visit the second and third floors.

Please visit us from 10 AM until 5 PM both days and see our C&O Canal Visitors Center, the Museum Store, Brunswick History exhibits (2nd FL), and a large HO scale model layout (3rd FL).

While we are a free admission Museum, we have about $99,000 to pay towards our facade project, so donations this weekend are gladly appreciated. Did you know that if each visitor to Brunswick Railroad Days left $1 in our donation jar, we would raise over $10,000? Can you visit and help us out?

We look forward to seeing you and remind you that the Museum does not sell Train Ride Tickets. Information about Train Rides can be found here: http://www.brunswickrailroaddays.org/trainrides.html

It is time to release our "Spooky Season" Schedule!

Get ready to walk historic Brunswick, listen to ghostly tales, and search for sprits that remain here.

Back by popular demand is our Brunswick Ghost and History Walks. Take an approximate 1 mile, one hour tour of downtown Brunswick with Brakeman Jim and listen to haunted local stories. The cost is still just $10 each and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Museum's facade restoration project. Dates and time will be Friday October 20th at 6:00 PM; Saturday October 21st, at 6:00 PM & 8:00 PM; Friday October 27th at 6:00 PM & 8:00 PM; and Sunday October 29th at 6:00 PM. Seperate Facebook events will be created. These walks will sell out so reserve your spot early to enjoy this local and affordable event. Email [email protected] to reserve your day and time.

On Saturday October 28th we have a special event where we will provide a Brunswick History and Ghost Tour as well as a paranormal investigation with the ghost pit. The tour is 5:00 PM until 6:00 PM and the paranormal investigation is 6:00 PM- 10:00 PM. The wall is $10 and the Investigation is $15. This is a well spent $25 for five hours of entertainment. Again, email [email protected] to reserve your spot as this event will sell out early.

We thank you for supporting the Brunswick Heritage Museum during the month of October!

Museum Begins Historic Restoration Project

The facade renovation work has begun and a big THANK YOU to our donors! With your help, we raised over $60,000 locally for this project.

We also thank the City of Brunswick and the State of Maryand for $200,000 towards the project.

However, we still need help meeting our goal. The Museum is still $100,000 shy of the total needed for the completion of this project.

If you haven't, please consider being a part of this effort to restore the museum, and downtown Brunswick.

Yes we are still open too!' We are open during construction on Saturdays 10 AM - 4 PM and Sunday 1 PM - 4 PM.

We are so sorry to report our elevator is out of service.

A major electrical part has failed and while on order, has a 2 month out delivery date. Sadly we also had to dig deeply into our operating costs to cover this expense and now need to step our fundraising up another notch to cover this unforeseen expense of $92,500.

So, we do apologize for this significant inconvenience but would also ask you consider a donation to help us stay on track. We have refoucsed a grant from the City for our facade to cover the cost, we now need to backfil the $92,500 void for the facade.

Can you assist?

On a recent visit to the Brunswick Heritage Museum, Rob Dowling made an important donation to the Museum. Mr. Dowling is the Great Grandson of Dr. Horine. Donated to the Museum were about 50 items from Dr. Horine's Drug Store. Items included the good Dr.s medicine bag, apothecary bottles, drug store glasses, Ice cream dishes, and silver serving wear from the Drug Store. Also donated were marble and brass scales and a victrola from the house above the store. Pictured are Museum President Julie Kloetzli, Rob & Carina Dowling, and their dog Elmer.

Mr. Dowling met our Executive Director, James Castle, years ago when the Horine Mural was dedicated. They have kept in touch and Mr. Dowling has made numerous donations to the Museum. Mr. Castle is excited about this latest donation stating that the Museum now has enough items to complete a dedicated Horine display at the Museum.

08/14/2022

The Brunswick Heritage Museum is happy to offer this newly-released book: "John Ballendine: Early Developer of Potomac River By-Pass Canals, and Developments on the Occoquan And James Rivers" by David McIntosh and Don Peterson.

The story is about a commoner in the 1700s, a man with high intellect, a dreamer who brought safer navigation on the Potomac River, but a stone mansion at Occoquan that rivaled many of the homes of British royalty in the Colonies, built the first four-story grist mill in the Colonies, and was a "doer" who built by-pass canals around the hazardous rapids at Senneca Falls and Litte Falls, which promoted greater use of the Potomac River and increased economic benefits to the colonists in Virginia and Maryland.

"This quality hard-bound book is written by a man who has dedicated many years to researching canals and his friend who is a great researcher and has authored many books on history. I look forward to learning about John Ballendine."
-James R. Castle, Local Brunswick Historian

The book is $25 and is available at the Museum Store open Saturdays from 10-4 and Sundays from 1-4 at 40 West Potomac Street in Brunswick.

We need your help because we are so close to making a dream come true!

As you may know that the Museum launched Project 2020 to raise funds to restore the front facade of the Brunswick Heritage Museum, historically known as at Red Men’s Building. To date, the Museum has secured $350,000 for the project.

The State of Maryland, through the efforts of Senator Hough, is funding $200,000 of the project. The City of Brunswick was gracious in providing $100,000 of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to the project. The Museum has $50,000 for the project from donations and contributions over the past 2 years.

With the assistance of funding through the Civil War Heritage Area, the Museum was able to hire SM&P, a well-known and highly regarded architectural firm located in Baltimore. SM&P created construction plans that were approved by the Maryland Historical Trust.

Through a competitive bidding process, Trionfo Builders from Phoenix, MD was selected as the contractor with a base bid of $375,000. The construction plans are currently in the Frederick County permitting process.

Currently, the Museum is just $25,000 short of fully funding this wonderful project. Can you assist us to cross the finish line on this important downtown Brunswick revitalization project?

500th visitor Joe Walker won a whistle at this awesome museum. The young lady to the right of the picture. Had some great railroad family history. This was well worth this railroaders trip to brunswik MD.
Since 1900, the hobos have gathered in Britt, Iowa to elect their new King and Queen. Bookworm Bonnie is the International Queen of the Hobos, (2013-14).

Her lively presentation will include:
• A description of the hobo life - including a historical perspective.
• Secret hobo signs.
• The significance of obo ames, with a special “Dubbing Ceremony” for
anyone who wishes to earn a hobo name…
• The difference between a Hobo, Bum, and Tramp…
• Hobo art including: quilts, jewelry, embroidery and more…
There will be a display of pictures, handouts, and time for Q & A.

Joining Bookworm Bonnie will be her husband, “Cannonball” Paul”, America’s premier
Railroad/Hobo Musician. He performs on vintage instruments favored by hobos: the banjolele and harmonica. The stories and songs reflect hobo culture, creed and code.

This event is free and suitable for all ages.

The American Hobo: A Misunderstood Historical Icon
Many thanks to the fine folks at the Brunswick Heritage Museum for hosting me this past Saturday afternoon!
Is the museum open this Sunday, Christmas Eve?
This turned up on my page. The fellow who posted it says he doesn't have the location.

The background looks like it could be Brunswick, but other elements suggest somewhere else.

Can anyone identify this?

Beginning this Friday. Don't miss it!
