NEW! Frederick’s Architectural Heritage
4 sessions, 8 hours
This course on American architecture will use Frederick County examples to highlight the changes from early colonial vernacular building forms through the rise of national stylistic trends. The course will start with two lectures and end with two walking tours of downtown National Register Historic Districts preserved in Emmitsburg and Frederick. Students will be responsible for providing their own transportation to the walking tours. A designated meetup location for each community will be provided by the instructor after the start of the course.
