First called Berlin, later Barry, and finally named Brunswick in 1890, the town's fortunes fluctuated with the times. The canal was built here in 1834 and a large gristmill, powered by canal water, was built on the canal across from the towpath. During the Civil War the town grew to 500 people but dwindled to 200 by 1890. In that year the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad built its switchyard center and repair shops here. The town continued to prosper until the railroad moved most of its operations elsewhere.
