Overview of Tour
Join us for a walk through Historic Downtown Frederick, Maryland. The City of Clustered Spires. Discover the city’s rich historical and cultural heritage — from the early German settlement of “Fredericktowne” in 1745, through bustling industry and devastating floods, to the revitalized city of today.

This 2-hour, 1.2-mile walking tour comprises 12 stops and about 60 points of interest. (The tour can be made shorter or longer upon request).

We will visit churches whose congregations have worshiped in Frederick for nearly 300 years, places critical to rebellion before the Revolutionary War and secession during the Civil War, buildings that served as part of Frederick’s “One Vast Hospital” for soldiers after the Battles of South Mountain and Antietam, schools that have been a part of Frederick’s legacy for more than 200 years, and recent revitalization efforts ensuring that Frederick thrives into the future.

The last stop will be at the "Square Corner" — The Crossroads of Maryland.

We can tailor the tour from 1 to 3 hours depending upon your time constraints, endurance, and interest.

We can give tours year round. If it is raining/snowing (light) and you still want to take the tour, we can do that. If it is raining/snowing (hard), we can do a virtual "tour" indoors (groups of 8 or less).

We can give virtual tours indoors with a slide projector powerpoint presentation for those who have difficulty walking.

Upon request, we can also offer theme tours such as the Civil War, churches, or buildings/architecture — or even photo shoots.
