The owners of Georgetown’s landmark Brick Hotel are closing the Sussex County business and its restaurant on Aug. 28 and plan to lease the building to the state Department of Justice.

The DOJ on Oct. 1 will move its Sussex County offices into the building located in an historic area of town known as The Circle. 

From its opening in 1836, the Brick Hotel in Georgetown has been a key gathering place when Sussex County holds its unique post-election event, Return Day.

The Department of Justice is home to Delaware’s attorney general, the state’s chief law enforcement officer. The current home of the Sussex office also is in Georgetown at 114 E. Market St. The cost of the move and any potential renovations is not yet known.

“The town hopes that whatever happens with the building, it stays as a beautiful attribute on our Circle,” Georgetown’s Town Manager Gene Dvornick said Tuesday.
