The Frederick Town Series

Frederick Town History Series
3 sessions • 4.5 hours each

Based on Chris Haugh’s award winning documentary series, Frederick Town, these sessions include selections of the documentary, additional content, a “show and tell” portion and lively discussions. Fun fact – the documentary was produced to commemorate the September 1745 founding of Frederick in the backlands of the Maryland colony.

Featuring more than a dozen on-camera historians and commentators, the story of Frederick is presented alongside  vintage artwork, photographs and artifacts, scenic mood footage, quotes and diary passages. While the documentary begins with the 1700s, this spring series of presentations will focus primarily on the 1900’s to present day.
