Group Workcamp Frederick, Maryland

Frederick has been an important crossroads community since it was in colonial times at the intersection of an important north–south Indian trail, and east–west routes to the Chesapeake Bay. Quick access to Baltimore and across the Appalachian Mountains to the Ohio River watershed, Frederick remains the gateway to western Maryland.

With its collection of historic homes, museums and battlefields the city is a must-see destination for any history enthusiast. The sites of two bloody Civil War battles are preserved at Monocacy National Park and South Mountain State Park. Within the city, visit the National Museum of Civil War Medicine and learn how soldiers wounded in those battles were treated. Visit the house of Barbara Fritchie and picture her hanging the Stars & Stripes in defiance of the Confederate Army.

Today, Frederick is a city in need of a boost from willing volunteers. Come and see the history, but also have a role in restoring some of the homes that have fallen victim to that weathering over time.
