More About Frederick County Revisited by Historical Society of Frederick County
 
 
 
Overview
Established in 1748, Frederick County s fascinating heritage was shaped by agricultural, commercial, and industrial prosperity; the opening of routes west by wagon, water, and rail; Civil War battles and intrigue; and the nurturing of education and religion. This second volume includes historic images of a raging flood in Point of Rocks and a devastating Frederick barn fire. It shows the
thumbprints of pivotal national events in photographs like those of a German POW camp in Frederick. It glimpses into more personal moments in time as well: two young friends clowning around on a
rooftop in 1930, students studying in their 19th century classroom, and the Colored Order of the Knights of Pythias gathering for a convention in 1925. Also featured are personalities like U.S. senator Charles Mac Mathias, musician Bion Firestone, and Uncle Billy Hilton, the pretzel man, along with sports teams, students, congregations, organizations, and businesses that make up who we are and what we have become as a community."
