Jacquelyn Ebersole Building was originally built and named Hosiery Building. Ladies stockings, then a series of uses; among them, sewing sponsered by Singer Sewing Machines of Frederick Maryland run by Addy Harner, the Poland & Katz of Baltimore had the umbrella's (1938-1948)or longer, then Price Electric was there in the early 1950's. My mother and brother both worked there and then were transfered to Frederick. There was stretchy baby clothes and maybe another sewing operation. Mr. Stanley Hartz opened Megusta Mills in 1971 hiring all the women who had been working for the previous sewing operation. Just the jackets to suits and sport coats were made here. The pants and vests of the suits were made in Woodsboro, jackets were also made in Union Bridge and Frederick. Seperate pressing operations were at Abreacht Street in Frederick. In the beginning of his operation all cutting, fitting and soabaring was done on Highland Street in Frederick and delivered to the individual plants. Finished garments were returned to Highland Street for shipment.
Mr. Hartz later moved all operations to the American Optical Building on Shol's Lane near the Airport. The factory in Brunswick had been doubled in length during Mr. Hartz's ownership. I think it was around 1982 when everyone went to Frederick. The building here was empty for a good while but a cabinet shop has been there for a good while now and does beautiful work
