Welcome to Frederick

Less than an hour from Washington DC, Baltimore, and Gettysburg, Frederick is called the Crossroads of Maryland. An important Native American trail junction long before 18th century European settlers arrived, Frederick was founded by German immigrants in the mid-1700s. The town has a rich history from colonial times through the Revolution, the region saw much action during the Civil War, and many houses, churches, and other period buildings remain. The Monocacy National Battlefield is nearby, and the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in the historic downtown recalls the period when wounded soldiers from the battles of South Mountain and Antietam were cared for in Frederick.
