Gragg-Owen-Miller House, 1910, Brunswick

Thanks to Ginger Miller for identifying this wonderful Colonial Revival, which has been in her family for six generations. She writes: My grandparents (Gragg) purchased the house, my parents (Owen) had it next and now we (Miller) have the house. Mr. McKinnon who built the McKinnon House across the street built this house for his daughter. Our property was a part of the land grant for Glynn Academy. We have the abstract on the property dating back to 1835. She also notes that it has a brick basement, a real rarity in sea-level Brunswick.

Eclectic Victorian Houses, Brunswick

This house, and the house next door, are near twins. The first house features a porte cochere. Both have a general Victorian appearance, though the gable windows are Colonial Revival in style.

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.
