Founded in 1745 by English & German settlers, Frederick, originally named Fredericktowne, is a historic city distinguished by Colonial and Federal architecture in the heart of Maryland.

While the small town face of Frederick hasn’t changed, the business climate has. The area has grown into a vibrant business community from the agricultural community it was in the 1700’s. With our close proximity to Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Frederick has become a sought-after site for new business.

In addition to an award-winning public school system, Frederick County is home to several institutions of higher education, including Frederick Community College, Hood College, and Mount Saint Mary’s College and Seminary.
