Barn tour planned in Frederick, Md.

February 25, 2007

FREDERICK, Md. - The Frederick County Landmarks Foundation invites the public to visit and tour historic barns of the Middletown Valley on Saturday, June 23. Ten historic and unusual barns will be showcased in a one-day "barnstorming" tour to raise awareness of these important pieces of Americana that are being lost from the countryside.

"Since the last historic sites survey in 1970, Frederick County has lost 324 barns because of changing farming practices and development," said Birch Hotz, Landmarks committee chairperson.

The tour will raise money for Landmarks Foundation's efforts to increase public awareness, create understanding and inspire a passion for the historic barns of Frederick County and their heritage.

For information about the tour, call Birch Hotz at 301-293-2215. For information about the foundation, call 301-668-6088; e-mail fredcolandmarks@aol.com, or write to Frederick County Landmarks Foundation Inc., 49 S. Carroll St., Frederick, MD 21701.
