Did you know?

Did you know that Fort Frederick was carefully restored by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s, and operates as a living history museum? Located inside the fort are two reconstructed enlisted men's barracks. Fort Frederick was the largest stone fort built by the British in the colonies, during the French and Indian War period. Known as the "Gibraltar on the Potomac," the fort today is said to be "Western Maryland's First Homeland Security." The fort celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2006.
