Description

The Frederick County Landmarks Foundation is an organization that seeks to actively pursue the preservation of historic sites; structures, natural landmarks, and communities of Frederick County, Maryland and to increase the knowledge and appreciation of all of the above.

To this end, we have helped restore and preserve sites such as Schifferstadt, and the Beatty-Cramer house.

At these sites, Landmarks heads different events; Oktoberfest and Bell and History Days at Schifferstadt, Living History Days at Beatty-Cramer. These events both involve the community and make them aware of the importance of historic sites and buildings under Landmarks' care.

History

The Frederick County Landmarks Foundation was started in 1975 by a group of women called the Founding Mothers who wanted to bring new life to an ailing Frederick and help restore run-down historic sites. With a lot of hard work and many years, their work continues on.

Research Collections

  • The information gathered by the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation is stored at the Frederick County Heritage Preservation Center.

Educational Programs

FCLF is in charge of the Traveling Trunk which is a way for children to learn about the Eastern Woodland Indian Cultures of Maryland. The trunk can be loaned out to schools and has various items inside that incite discussion on how certain tools may have been used or how they were made.
