Heritage Frederick  – The Historical Society of Frederick County
Bridging the Past to the Future

Museums by Candlelight

Once a year, Frederick County’s numerous historic sites and museums provide visitors with a living reminder of this area’s splendid past. While this year’s Museums by Candlelight event will look a little different, there are still many opportunities to discover the areas rich history and culture. Heritage Frederick, as part of this year’s virtual Museums by Candlelight event, is highlighting some holiday traditions in Frederick and around the world. Through a series of interviews with leaders of some of Frederick’s cultural organizations and other special guests, we come together to highlight and celebrate the different cultural traditions taking place this time of year. In 2021, Heritage Frederick will be debuting a new exhibition entitled “We The People,” which will pay tribute to all who have and do call this place their home, from our earliest inhabitants to today’s residents whose varying backgrounds are shaping our community’s legacy.
