HISTORY

OF THE BUILDING

1899

After celebrating their Golden Jubilee in 1898, brothers Simon and Susman Rosenbaum officially open Rosenbaum Bros Department Store at 118 Baltimore Street. Construction of the four story building allowed for the business to transform from a small dry goods store to a larger department store.

1926

Rosenbaum Brothers Department Store celebrated their 78th anniversary with a large sales event and a 1187 pound cake that sat in the front window. Filled with 78 gold and silver coins, the cake was baked by Community Bakery and took 3 days to bake and 2 days to decorate. In 1948, Rosenbaum Bros Department Store celebrated their centennial.

1955

On Saturday, August 20, 1955, Rosenbaum Brothers buried a time capsule at the Constitution Park Amphitheatre as part of the Cumberland Bicentennial Celebration. The capsule contained pictures of the city, heads of important city organizations, and friends of the Rosenbaum family. Copies of local newspapers and 1955 coins were also added to the capsule.

1971

In late 1971, the Rosenbaum Department Store officially closed its doors. Eyerly’s Department Store moved into the space before relocating to Lavale.

1986

The former Rosenbaum Building was purchased by First Federal Savings Bank in 1986. The building was renovated, and much of the current footprint of the remodel exists today.
