About Frederick, Maryland

To borrow a thought from an American Quaker poet, John Greenleaf Whittier, Frederick is a city of clustered spires emerging amidst the green hills of Maryland. This crossroads community is the gateway to western Maryland. Founded in 1745, it is the second-largest incorporated city in the state, behind Baltimore. Fancied for its historical district, winding roads, and open fields with fresh country air, Frederick lies roughly 50 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. and west of Baltimore where Catoctin Mountain meets the Piedmont plateau region.
