History

Founded as a result of Brunswick's 75th anniversary celebration, the "Diamond Jubilee", the Brunswick Potomac foundation held festivals in its early years, celebrating the town's rich transportation and natural histories. After purchasing a building in 1974, the Brunswick Railroad Museum has served the community in many ways, and has attracted visitors from all around the world, and attempting to keep its small-town-museum feel while constantly integrating new methods and technologies into our exhibits and archives.
