Walk Berwick

110 Chestnut Street


This home was originally called The English Cottage . It is of English Tudor style and built for Dr. Edwin A. Glenn, a notable physician in Berwick. Originally two separate buildings, they were joined together in the 1970s. The first corner building was built in 1900. It consisted of an office and operating

room on the first floor, and an apartment on the second floor. There was a carriage house with a one horse stall where the garage now stands. When Dr. Glenn married, he had the English Tudor style cottage built next to the office. The two buildings were separated by a door from the operating room into his living room. The home was completely furnished with oak cottage furniture. The main building is more than 112 years old and is in excellent condition. The Mayo Funeral Home currently occupies the property.

237 East Third Street


This is the W.C. Garrison House. It is Queen Anne Victorian, a design popular from 1880-1910 and notable for its segmented roof line with many steep pitches, hips, and cross gables along with a dominant front- facing gable. If there is a tower, its placement is off center, creating an asymmetrical façade. Porches

are partial or full width, usually one story high, and extend along one or two sides of the house. This home was built for W.C. Garrison, who began his career as auditor and chief accountant for the American Wheel Company in Chicago and Scranton. He then became president of the Berwick Company Store in 1911. The Company Store was opened in 1850 by the Jackson & Woodin Manufacturing Company for the convenience of their employees and the residents of Berwick. Garrison was hired to systemize the business. His wife, Sarah Gamble McGall, was from Baltimore and belonged to the prominent Gamble family of Proctor & Gamble renown. The home was also known as the McHenry Home, the Fenstermacher Home, and Third & Chestnut Sts. It was also once the residence of former Berwick Enterprise publisher Maynard Johnson. It is currently owned by Dr. Hoch.
