Local Information About Frederick County in Maryland
Frederick County, located in the northern Maryland, was created in 1748 from Baltimore and Prince George’s counties. The County was probably named after Frederick Calvert , the sixth and last Lord Baltimore, who was the Proprietor of Maryland from 1751 until his death in 1771. The county seat of Frederick County is the town of Frederick. In 2014 Frederick County transitioned to a charter home rule government.
The city of Frederick has been an important crossroads community since colonial times with its location at the intersection of an important north–south Indian trail, and east–west routes to the Chesapeake Bay. Frederick was an important stop along the migration route that became known as the Great Wagon Road, which came south from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Emmitsburg, Maryland continuing along the Great Appalachian Valley through Winchester and Roanoke, Virginia. To control this crossroads during the American Revolution, the British garrisoned a German Hessian regiment in the town. The stone, L-shaped “Hessian Barracks” still stands today. After the war ended, many former Hessian solders stayed, marrying into the town’s families and strengthening the town’s German identity. In the early 19th century As the county seat for Western Maryland, Frederick not only was an important market town, but also the seat of justice. Frederick was also known during the nineteenth century for its religious pluralism, with one of its main thoroughfares, Church Street, hosting about a half dozen major churches.
In 1806, President Thomas Jefferson commissioned the building of a national road from Baltimore toward St. Louis. This “national pike,” which later became U.S. Route 40 ran through Frederick along Patrick Street.
In 1846 when the first wave of Irish refugees from the potato famine settled in Frederick, the residents of Frederick began to speak English for the first time in the town’s history. German had been the primary language until then. In 1861 during the Civil War, Frederick briefly became Maryland’s capital city, as the state’s legislature moved from Annapolis to vote on the secession question.
The Frederick Historic District in the city’s downtown houses more than 200 retailers, restaurants and antique shops along Market, Patrick and East Streets. In addition to retail and dining, downtown Frederick is home to 600 businesses and organizations totaling nearly 5,000 employees. A growing technology sector can be found in downtown’s historic renovated spaces, as well as in new office buildings located along Carroll Creek Park. Carroll Creek Park serves as an economic development catalyst, with private investment along the creek functioning as a key component to the park’s success. On the first Saturday of every month, the city of Frederick hosts an evening event in the downtown area called “First Saturday”. Each Saturday has a theme, and activities are planned around those themes in the downtown area.
The Frederick Arts Council is the designated arts organization for Frederick County. The organization is charged with promoting, supporting, and advocating the arts. With over ten art galleries in downtown Frederick, three theaters: the Cultural Arts Center, the Weinberg Center for the Arts, and the Maryland Ensemble Theatre, the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center as well as the Maryland Shakespeare Festival, residents of both the town of Frederick and the country enjoy an abundance of art and theater. Musical organizations in Frederick include the Frederick Chorale, the Choral Arts Society of Frederick, the Frederick Regional Youth Orchestra, and the Frederick Symphonic Band, as well as their own community orchestra, the Frederick Symphony Orchestra.
