Major Columbia Downing House, 1886, Brunswick

Designed by Alfred Eichberg, who also designed Brunswick’s Old City Hall and Temple Beth Tefiloh, this is now home to Brunswick Manor, the most popular bed and breakfast in town. The original owner, Major Columbia Downing (1845-1924), was a big booster for commercial and residential development and chartered the National Bank of Brunswick in 1884. He was also the founder of the Downing Company, a naval stores factor, in 1890.
