HISTORY

In the late 1920s, upon the completion of the magnificient new building for the Monongahela National Bank at 46 Market Street, the former bank across the street was remodeled into a storeroom. Charles L. Snowden, for sometime, had felt the need for a library building in Brownsville. He had sought some low ground behind the building on the east side of the “neck” and had it filled in, making possible additional business space in the center of town. On a lot adjoining the Charles Street Bridge, which he had built over Dunlap's Creek, he decided to erect a building to house a library. The front was adorned with two pink granite columns that were take from the remodeled banking room, and, cut in stone, across the front of the building are the words, "BROWNSVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY."
