We the People Banner
Spires of Frederick

Frederick County has always been a crossroads.
It’s allure to residents and visitors today is not much different from what captivated the Indigenous Peoples or the settlers from around the world who came here over the last 275 years. People have benefited from a scenic environment, ample natural resources, fertile lands, and the production of necessary goods and amenities.

A continual “mosaic” of people have created and re-created this unique and special place. Frederick County’s story goes on with “authors” that include new residents who arrive from neighboring counties, states, and countries from around the globe.

We the People is a new exhibit at Heritage Frederick, highlighting the impact and influence of Indigenous Peoples and settlers as well as stories of today’s immigrants in Frederick County.

This online gallery is a preview of our larger in-house exhibition.
