As a life long resident of the county, embarrassed to say I haven't stopped in before. The historical offering and artifacts are diverse and most interesting. In spite of being familiar with county history, I learned much more. It takes a good hour to thoroughly tour. Would highly recommend.
Some interesting artifacts and quite a few good interpretive panels The house itself is interesting for its having been used as a home for orphaned girls for many years.

Although it was beastly hot out, they did hand out water before we left. I had my own water bottle, and needed it. The guide... 更多
Living in Frederick for my entire life, I was pretty sure I knew its history. After talking to the staff at the historical society, I realized my knowledge was way below expectations. The "docents" study and do workshops with each other, just to learn more and to ensure they are able to speak accurately about all the historical items in... 更多
