Horine Building Open House
October 3 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Having established his first pharmacy “between the tracks” in 1890, Dr. Arlington G. Horine built his signature drug store and residence at the corner of Maple Avenue and Potomac Street in 1910 as the railroad yard expanded and forced merchants to move the business district up the hill. The building still stands today and is adorned by a beautiful mural that in part depicts Dr. Horine, who also served as Chief Surgeon of the B&O, Brunswick’s Health Officer, and Mayor from 1906-14, looking out the window.
The retail interior was typical of an early twentieth century soda fountain and pharmacy and you can still see its signature millwork, tile floor, and tin ceiling today. Current owners Todd & Kim are opening up the residential part to new generations of Brunswick visitors as short term rentals. Check out what’s happening as this building continues to survive and thrive into the 21st century!
