Heritage Frederick has long been a repository of Frederick history for residents and
visitors alike. Now a new program is blooming in the garden that will let you honor special people and events in your past, present or future. The Commemorative BrickProgram is available to anyone who would like to add a piece of their history to this important landmark. For $100, your custom engraved brick will be set into the existing pathways for all to see. The program will run year round with twice yearly dedication ceremonies.
