Join us for a walk through Historic Downtown Frederick, Maryland. The City of Clustered Spires. Discover the city’s rich historical and cultural heritage — from the early German settlement of “Fredericktowne” in 1745, through bustling industry and devastating floods, to the revitalized city of today.
This 2-hour, 1.2-mile walking tour comprises 12 stops and about 60 points of interest.
We will visit churches whose congregations have worshiped in Frederick for nearly 300 years, places critical to rebellion before the Revolutionary War and secession during the Civil War, buildings that served as part of Frederick’s “One Vast Hospital” for soldiers after the Battles of South Mountain and Antietam, schools that have been a part of Frederick’s legacy for more than 200 years, and recent revitalization efforts ensuring that Frederick thrives into the future.
The last stop will be at the "Square Corner" — The Crossroads of Maryland.
The cost is $10 per person—please have cash to pay the guide directly.
For anyone that wants to afterwards, we can try to get something to eat (maybe Brewer's Alley or White Rabbit Gastropub or Isabella's). You can also check out the antiquing at the Emporium — it is an amazing indoor experience!
So please register by Sunday 5/23. I am excited and praying for good weather!!! Dress appropriately (walking shoes, hat, jacket, etc.) and your own water if you need.
