From Brunswick Main Street, Inc.,

This building was constructed around 1900.  The building's close proximity to the bank building made it a desirable location for dozens of businesses since its construction.  An ad from a 1900's Brunswick Herald announced that fine railroad work clothing could be found at this location along the “boardwalk” (the sidewalk constructed of wood).  A 1924 business directory lists at 5 West Potomac Street “J.E. Moore, successor to F.E. Alder, Railroad watches a specialty”.  Most long time Brunswick residents remember this location as a Pharmacy, either as Fribush's or Payne's Pharmacies.  Tommy Sigler rehabilitated the structure in the mid 1990's.  The building has been home to many residents, as there are four apartments located above the two commercial storefronts.
More recently this location has been home to the Glistening Rose, eGraphics, Pixie Dust and an auction house.

If you would like to own a building of your own in Downtown Brunswick, please come out on September 15th at 11am and own a piece of Brunswick history.  Brunswick Main Street will work with you to find a tenant suitable to your new property.  Brunswick Main Street currently has $60,000 in matching funds for any approved facade work.
