Brunswick Heritage Museum

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park


A photo of Brunswick, Maryland from 1862.

The Brunswick Heritage Museum walks you through the story of a small town on the edge of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. Brunswick’s population grew from 200 to nearly 2,500 people in less than a decade when a railroad yard was built in the town in the late 1890s. The museum offers everything from a Brunswick history lesson to an interactive model railroad.
