If you are interested in the history of German settlers or are interested in architecture, this is a cool tour. It's the oldest building in Frederick and is well preserved or as they said "preserved due to neglect" for many years. This is not a...More

This is a nice historic place to visit. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and encouraged questions throughout the tour. I found it interesting that the house is more of a history lesson than a beautified example of 'how it might have looked'. This is...More

Great part of Frederick history. Nice tour of home and gardens as life in the early setteling of Frederick City was like. Combine this with a walk of Baker park and downtown Frederick

We came here to see Octoberfest, the first time in 20 years we've visited the museum. There were vendors and sweepstakes for prizes that day and food and beer and wine sales also. We took the house tour which was very interesting. There were costumed...More

Interesting place to visit if you're into architecture/old buildings. We stopped here on our way into Frederick proper. We didn't pay the $5 to enter the building but looked through the window. :) I guess we were being a bit cheap! Beautiful building! I would...More
