Heritage Frederick is a privately ran institution which makes our collections solely reliant on the donations of the public. We have large holdings in certain areas, though we wish to grow in other areas as well. Some topics that we would like to have more resources on include African American history, Hispanic history, farming history, items from any 20th century war veterans, nurses, parents etc., industrial histories (Everedy, McCutcheons, Lincoln Tailoring Co., etc), diaries, Jewish history, towns outside of downtown Frederick, prohibition, Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Land Records, maps, oral histories, photos, family genealogy books or compilations, and business histories. This is not a full list, but several suggestions. We are immensely grateful for each and every donation we receive, and we thank the public for thinking of us.
*Please note that Heritage Frederick will only accept items that have direct connections to Frederick County (about someone who lived or worked in Frederick County, owned by someone in Frederick County, or was made in Frederick County.)
