All About Frederick

Frederick County is a wonderful, extremely diverse community of 200,000, which offers everything you could find in a big city while still retaining a welcoming small-town atmosphere.

Frederick City is Maryland’s second-largest city (behind Baltimore) and boasts a beautiful historic Main Street downtown with unusual shops, outstanding restaurants, an Arts district, bed and breakfasts, live theater, one of the best collections of antique shops in the mid-Atlantic, and street after street of beautiful 18th, 19th and early 20th Century homes.

Frederick is 40 miles west of Washington and Baltimore, and has been a major crossroads of history, especially during the Civil War. Armies of the North and the South passed through Frederick many times on their way to battles at Antietam, South Mountain and Gettysburg. The Battle of the Monocacy, fought a few miles southeast of Frederick city, was a pivotal fight that could have changed the course of the war if the South had been able to cross the river and march on Washington.
