Brunswick is a city in Frederick County, Maryland, United States. The population was 5,870 at the 2010 census.
Point of Rocks is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Frederick County, Maryland, United States. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 1,466. It is named for the striking rock formation on the adjacent Catoctin Mountain, which was formed by the Potomac River cutting through the ridge in a water gap, a typical formation in theAppalachian Mountains. The formation is not visible from the town and can only be seen from boats on the river, or from the southern bank of the river in Virginia.
The area now known as Brunswick was originally home to the Susquehanna Indians. In 1728 the first settlement was built, and the region became known as Eel Town, because the natives would fish for eel in the Potomac River. A grant to the land was then given to John Hawkins by George II of Great Britain on August 10, 1753. The grant had the name “Hawkins Merry-Peep-o-Day”.
The land was sold and Leonard Smith platted it in 1787 with the name of “Berlin,” as many Germans settled in the area. The name “Berlin,” however, could not be used for mail as there was already a Berlin on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, so the post office changed the name to “Barry.” The town continued to grow and was incorporated April 18, 1890 with the name “Brunswick.”
Established along the now-defunct Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, the city became a hub for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, which built a six-mile-long rail yardalong the Potomac from 1891 to 1912, boosting the population to over 5,000, and making Brunswick virtually a company town. The railroad reduced its yard operations in the 1950s.
Today Brunswick is home to a commuter rail station serving Washington, D.C.. It is home of the Brunswick Railroad Museum that shows the history of the city and is home of a large model railroad showing why the city’s location was important to the railroad.
The largest city-wide event is “Railroad Days” on the first weekend in October. Other events year round include the Veterans Day Parade on the first Sunday of November, the Wine and Chocolate Walk in September, Farmers’ Market, Arts In The Parks, Little League opening day, and other city and museum events.
The city markets its historic downtown, the railroad museum, and its access to the C&O Canal and Potomac River. There are antique stores, an art studio and gallery, a martial arts studio, beauty salon and a hardware store. There are live music performances many nights of the week at Beans in the Belfry, a café in a converted Lutheran church.
