BrunswickeBook - 2007
Eel Pot, Buffalo Wallows, Coxson Rest, Tankerville, Hawkins' Merry-Peep-O-Day, Berlin--readers might not recognize a few of the names the area now known as Brunswick went by in years past. Brunswick, Maryland, just six miles by towpath from historic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, is rich in history. The area holds Civil War importance and served as a supply depot for the Union army after the Battle of Antietam. Primarily known as a canal town until the late 1800s, the town became an important rail center when the Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) Railroad came to town and set up huge rail operations. Today the town sits on the now-quiet banks of the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal, and the train whistles don't sound quite so often, but this community continues to draw visitors seeking history, outdoor recreation, and small-town charm.
