A Stroll Thru Downtown Frederick


A couple of weeks ago me and my family went to Frederick, MD. We live close by, I've visited this city many times though I'm not that familiar with the area. We'd planned to go to a museum and do a bit of window shopping since lately, this is one of  my teenage daughter's "favorite places to hang out". ;)


Once we parked and headed to our destination, we couldn't stop admiring the beautiful homes and their architecture as we passed by.


This huge Colonial house was hard to ignore even though it's looking a bit drab. Beautiful trim work.


Look at the size of the sun-room! I really wished I could go inside. It seemed to be empty. :(


Across the street, this other house looked monumental. Once we went by, we discovered it's a funeral home.


But all along the road, most of the home's entrances were very charming.


Gorgeous churches abound in the area, we walked by this, the Frederick Evangelical Lutheran Church, the first church in Frederick, MD. Love the red door and the yellow-ish lanterns.


We also passed through many of these alleys in between houses. I find them some what mysterious.


Isn't it cool! The brick, the stone, the light fixtures, the little stands, the door at the end, the art on the outside walls. Wow. Love it!


Or how about this wall art!


However, Frederick is also the place to go antiquing.


Only it wasn't on our schedule that day.


Even though it was a very cold Saturday afternoon, the sidewalks weren't lonely.




I might say, the shops were having a good day.


Finally, we arrived at our destination...

The National Museum of Civil War Medicine. I'll share some pictures from the inside in a future post.


For now, here are some other links you might like to check about Frederick.






Have a great day!

  2. Cristina, I LOVE Frederick! I have been there numerous times and shopped both GSBP and Emporium. A great little town near enough to DC that I most always veer my husband to when we go to Alexandria/DC. Love all that architecture too!

  5. Christina, I don't think I've ever been to Frederick. I know it, of course, from the poem "Barbara Fritchie." It looks charming. I saw your link at Inspire Me Monday. Ann Marie at Iris Abbey www.irisabbey.com

  6. Exactly the place I've been in 2 years ago. A bit no change but still love the architecture of the buildings there. Missed out some of the hotels and apartments. truly far from the hectic place like singapore. Good things we some some excellent places where I can still unwind like crown@robinson, one of the ideal places.
