Berlin was primarily a canal town until 1888. The B&O Railroad then supplanted the water transportation system in importance with a seven mile freight yard. The newly named and incorporated Brunswick became a legitimate boomtown in the 1890s.
Today Brunswick is a "Main Street Maryland" community, boasting shops, eateries, a revitalized historic downtown center and an array of special events. The Brunswick Railroad Museum and C&O Canal National Historic Park Visitor Center interpret the town's rich transportation heritage.
