Brunswick History Mural Restoration

In 1998 the Brunswick History Mural was painted on a brick building in downtown Brunswick. It was a project supported by city residents, the city government, and the Frederick Arts Council. Last month the mural artist, Philip Aldinger of Randallstown, Maryland, returned to renew the paint and brighten this landmark artwork.

The mural is a collage of images that symbolize Brunswick history, including trains and depots, the roundhouse, canal, hills, churches, schools and baseball. The 16 x 40 ft. mural faces Square Corner Park at the junction of Maple Avenue and Potomac Street in the heart of downtown Brunswick.

The mural repainting is a joint project of Brunswick Main Street and the City of Brunswick. The aim of the project is to improve the park experience for residents and visitors and to encourage people to explore Brunswick’s historic downtown.
