Greenberg, Nichols, Paul

Bruce Greenberg and Linda Ferguson Rosevear met when they were graduate students at the University of Michigan. They married in 1968 and have two adult children, Paul and Leslie, and seven grand children, all of whom make them very happy.

In January 1975 Bruce Greenberg founded Greenberg Publishing Company. In 1976 he created Greenberg Shows to promote the collecting of model trains and to sell his growing line of publications. In 1978 Linda Greenberg joined the company.

In 1984 he founded Greenberg Properties Inc.

In 1991 the Greenbergs sold Greenberg Publishing Company and Greenberg Shows Inc. to Kalmbach Publishing Company of Waukesha, Wisconsin, the publisher of Classic Toy Trains and Model Railroader magazines. In June 1993 Bruce Greenberg resigned as President of Greenberg Publishing Company. Kalmbach then closed the Greenberg Publishing office in Sykesville and moved its activities to Waukesha.

Greenberg Shows remained in Sykesville until sold by Kalmbach in 2005. After selling Greenberg Publishing Company, Bruce Greenberg turned to real estate development. He substantially rebuilt three buildings in Sykesville, Maryland: the Rosevear Building, named for his father-in-law, the Greenberg Building, and the Firehouse. He enjoyed the entire process from designing changes to the buildings to managing the construction.

In Linda Greenberg's book, "Sykesville Past and Present" descriptions and photographs document these changes as well as changes to other Main Street buildings.
