Civil War Spy

Civil War man and horse

Heritage Frederick recognizes the challenges parents are facing with the closures, so 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.

Frederick Kids Scavenger Hunt

by Jack McCabe

Our scavenger hunt can be done by riding the car around the Baker Park neighborhood. Visit each home address marked on the map and find something unique.

Match the address answers with the listed clues. You do not need to visit them in any particular order.

Suggestion: Mark the map with the best order of homes, then follow that map to the locations. How did you do? Did you have to double back?
