Some interesting artifacts and quite a few good interpretive panels The house itself is interesting for its having been used as a home for orphaned girls for many years.

We took the 90 minute Historic Frederick Tour which was an excellent way to immerse ourselves in the history and culture of Frederick as well as learn our way around. Our tour guide, Sandy, was wonderful. She was pleasant, friendly, and tailored the tour to our interests. She shared a wealth of knowledge about Frederick. It was well worth the very reasonable cost of $7.00 per person.

It's a nice museum well kept and organized. Some friendly staff for sure. Lots of good exhibits for the county history. Worth a stop and especially if you're going to the church across the street

Local county historical societies are quite hit or miss in our experience. This was a hit. Not extensive, but quite informative, and I learned a lot more than I might have suspected before entering. Staff was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Goes way beyond just the colonial or civil war period. Worth the stop, but shouldn't take more than an hour.

We checked this out the same day we visited the Civil War Museum of Medicine. It was a good timeline of the area, and it was interesting to know that the building had at one time been a home for orphaned girls who were all taught how to assimilate into society with the proper knowledge and graces of other girls back then. It is free of charge, and you should be able to park on the street right outside.
