Bridging the Past to the Future

Online Programs

Civil War Spy

Heritage Frederick recognizes the challenges parents are facing with the closures, and we are offering new ways to provide high quality learning experiences without entering our doors. Our “Civil War Spy” activity can be done either at home or with a simple walk in downtown Frederick.


We offer a workbook for children, and an introduction for parents and other adult caregivers. These booklets are available online or may be picked up at Heritage Frederick’s entrance at 24 E. Church Street.


Parking is available on the street and across the street at the Church Street Parking Garage.


Any questions may be answered by contacting mboswell@frederickhistory.org.
