In August 2016, a few CORE members made a 5 hour drive from Raleigh, NC to Brunswick, MD to investigate the Brunswick Heritage Museum! The town grounds date back to pre-Revolutionary War and played a big role in the Civil War as well. It is nestled right along the Potomac River and next to a railroad track. The town over over 6,000 people is a railroad town, which impacts its history, economy, and identity. Thanks to James R. Castle, author of several books on the history of Brunswick, and president of the board at the museum, APS was able to access the museum for a night.
