A corner of the "Mural Bridge." The bridge sides are actually flat concrete; the rocks, ivy, enclaves, and birds are all painted on.
A corner of the "Mural Bridge." The bridge sides are actually flat concrete; the rocks, ivy, enclaves, and birds are all painted on.

Frederick has a bridge covered with a mural called the "Community Bridge". The artist, William Cochran, has been acclaimed for the realism of the painting. Thousands of people sent ideas representing community that appear throughout the stonework of the bridge. One of the most interesting parts of the mural is an angel that appears in perspective if you look at it from the proper angle (the proper angle being the middle window of the second floor of the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center). To the people of Frederick, it is called "the mural," "painted bridge," or more commonly known to the people as the "mural bridge."

The Frederick Arts Council (www.frederickartscouncil.org) is the designated arts organization for Frederick County. The organization is charged with promoting, supporting, and advocating the arts, a thriving community in the city. There are over ten art galleries in downtown Frederick, and three theaters are located within 50 feet of each other (Cultural Arts Center, Weinberg Center for the Arts, and the MET). Frederick is the home of the Maryland Ensemble Theatre and the Maryland Shakespeare Festival.

In August 2007, the streets of Frederick will be adorned with 30 life-size fiberglass keys as part of a major public art project entitled "The Keys to Frederick" (www.keystofrederick.org).

Frederick also has its own community orchestra, The Frederick Symphony Orchestra, that performs five concerts per year consisting of classical masterpieces. They offer musical enrichment programs such as Frederick Regional Youth Orchestra, Frederick Children's Chorus, and the Frederick Regional Symphonic Band.

Frederick is home to Frederick School of Classical Ballet, the official school for Maryland Regional Ballet. Approximately 30 dance studios are located around Frederick. Each year, these studios have an opportunity to perform at the annual DanceFest event.

Frederick contains both Hood College and Frederick Community College.

A weekly carillon recital is played on the Joseph Dill Baker Carillon each Sunday at noon for half an hour. The carillon can be heard from anywhere in Baker Park, or the City Carillonneur can be viewed playing in the tower, which is open each week at that time.

The city is well-known for the Clustered Spires skyline of its historic downtown buildings. These spires are depicted on the city's seal and many other city-affiliated logos and insignia.

The city is home to WFRE and WAFY radio stations.

Sites of Historical Interest

Frederick, Maryland is rich in colonial and Civil War history, and is home to both major defense and cultural institutions. The Museum of Civil War Medicine is located here, as is the U.S. Army vacility of Fort Detrick. Hood College and the Maryland School for the Deaf are also established here. Frederick also sports a minor-league baseball team, the Frederick Keys. Frederick is also home of several liberal organizations including the Peace Resource Center of Frederick County, an installation of Women in Black, and the Frederick Progressive Action Coalition or FredPac.

Frederick was the site of a Civil War speech given by President Abraham Lincoln, which took place at what was then a train depot at the current intersection of South and Market Streets. A plaque commemorates the speech.

Several historic Civil War battlefields are located near Frederick. Due West along Alternate US 40, and west of Burkittsville, Maryland, lie the sites of the three episodes in the Battle of South Mountain: the battles of Crampton's (September 14, 1862), Fox's, and Turner's Gaps, where Confederate troops under Jackson and Walker unsuccessfully attempted to halt the Federal army's advance into the Cumberland Valley. The war correspondents' memorial can be found at Gathland State Park at Crampton's Gap, just west of Burkittsville. The memorial to the slain union General Jesse Reno lies on the south side of Alternate US 40, west of Middletown, just below the summitt of Fox's Gap. 21 miles to the southwest lies historic Harper's Ferry, which dominates the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. Here stood a key Federal arsenal, and in 1859, Kansas Abolitionist John Brown seized these works, only to be surrounded and captured by a Federal force under Robert E. Lee. Early on September 17, 1862, Confederate General A. P. Hill raided the arsenal at Harper's Ferry to re-equip his own division before marching to the aid of Lee at Antietam. Collectors still find Civil War artifacts in the vicinity of Harper's Ferry, especially on Maryland Heights above the town on the Maryland side of the Potomac. The Monocacy Battlefield lies just outside the city limits, while Antietam and Gettsyburg lie approximately thirty-five miles to the west and north, respectively.

Another notable Civil War location is the former home of Barbara Fritchie, the woman who (according to legend) waved the Stars and Stripes in defiance of Confederate commander Stonewall Jackson and his troops as they marched through downtown Frederick. These events are the subject of an 1864 poem by John Greenleaf Whittier. Barbara Fritchie is buried in Frederick's Mt. Olivet cemetery next to Governor Thomas Johnson and Francis Scott Key.

About 23 miles south of Frederick lies historic Waterford, in Loudon County, Virginia, a well-preserved colonial town and site of a major annual colonial fair. The fair is always worth visiting.

Other notable Fredericktonians include former Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney, John Hanson, the first President of the United States under the Articles of Confederation; and Peter Wilson Hancock VII, political-rights activist and philosopher. Frederick is also the resting place of Francis Scott Key, the author of the National Anthem of the United States, "The Star-Spangled Banner." Also resting there, in the All Saints' Parish Cemetery is Thomas Sim Lee (1745–1819), who served two terms as Governor of Maryland. Lee was influential in the enactment of Statehood for Maryland and played an important role in completing the formation of the union in 1781.

The oldest house in the City of Frederick is Schifferstadt, built in 1756 by German settler Joseph Brunner. It is now the Schifferstadt Architectural Museum.
