Welcome to Frederick,MD! The City of Frederick is the hub of arts, culture, commerce and government within Frederick County. Located less than an hour from Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, MD, Frederick is the second largest city in Maryland with 65,000 residents.
Founded in 1745 by German settlers, Frederick is a city rich in heritage, opportunity, and innovation. Located between the Civil War battlegrounds of Monocacy, Antietam and Gettysburg, Frederick was ransomed from burning during the war and became a hospital town for the wounded soldiers. By the turn of the century Frederick industry was booming, centered on the canning, tanning and knitting industries and delivering products to market via the railroad to Baltimore.
Today, Frederick’s award-winning 40-block historic district, parks, neighborhoods and diverse industry base offer residents and visitors a unique blending of history and technology. On 22 weekends each year, downtown Frederick and neighboring 54-acre Baker Park play host to special events which include weekly summer concerts, monthly gallery walks, children’s theatrical performances, and other events which celebrate the season.* Here you will find just a few of our favorite places and spaces!
