A Taste of Frederick, Maryland

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT FREDERICK?

  1. Frederick is a city in west-central Maryland, United States. It is the county seat of Frederick County, the largest county by area in the state of Maryland. As of the 2009 U.S. Census Bureau estimates, the city has a total population of 59,644.

  2. After the Civil War, the Maryland legislature established racially segregated public facilities by the end of the 19th century, re-imposing white supremacy. Black institutions were typically underfunded in the state, and it was not until 1921 that Frederick established a public high school for African Americans. First located at 170 West All Saints Street, it moved to 250 Madison Street, where it eventually was adapted as South Frederick Elementary. The building presently houses the Lincoln Elementary School.

  3. Frederick is well-known for the "clustered spires" skyline of its historic downtown churches. These spires are depicted on the city's seal and many other city-affiliated logos and insignia. The housing stock of downtown Frederick is mostly composed of 19th and 20th-century row housing and duplexes. It is densely built, suitable for pedestrians, and with shops and restaurants, composes what Forbes magazine in 2010 called one of the United State's "Greatest Neighborhoods".

  4. There are numerous religious denominations in Frederick: the first churches were established by early Protestant settlers, followed by Irish Catholics and other European Catholics. Quinn Chapel, of the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church, is located on East Third Street. The AME Church, founded in Philadelphia in the early 19th century by free blacks, is the first black independent denomination in the United States.
