The Barbara Fritchie Air B&B

“Shoot if you must, this old grey head, but spare your Country’s flag”, she said. These famous words are believed by most to have been said by Barbara Fritchie, waving our flag out of the dormer of this house! Stay in Barbara’s house, rebuilt in the 1920’s, just upgraded to have all the things you’d expect in a hotel, but with the charm and patina of the late 1800’s. Located right on the famous Frederick Carroll Creek Linear park, and a block away from the downtown Frederick scene.
