Visited for the 1st time back in May 2014 to attend the 2nd annual Festa Italiana. The parking was free, but there was an entrance fee of $10/person to get into the festival. It was for a good cause though, the Habitat of Humanity of Frederick County. Soon after entering we got to exchange our American dollars for fake lira... More

Thomas Johnson, first Governor of Maryland and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States died in this house, owned by his daughter and son-in-law. His niece was married to President John Quincy Adams. The lovely historic house and grounds are well worth a visit.

Rose Hill Manor in Frederick is a hands on museum showing how the life would have been in the 19th century. They are visited by lots of school groups and there were lots of 4th graders touring when I was there. I enjoyed the fact that they have designed the rooms in the house with children and education in mind.... More

This was the retirement home of the first governor of Maryland, and a close friend of George Washingto., our first President. The home has been recently restored, and is open for visitors, as are the grounds. Guided tours are available. The guides are in period costumes, and trained to be very knowledgeable about the history of the place. Seasonal festivals... More

The museum was full of old toys, clothes, kitchen utensils, musical instruments and there were signs every where saying try out these things and see how the folk lived here. The kids had a great time with the toys and the adults too enjoyed reminiscing about some of the toys they had in their... More

The park seems to be well kept and clean. The house and outbuildings were also well kept. We enjoyed the tour of the house and learning all about how life was back in time.

Its wasn't a bad tour but wasn't anything extraordinary either. The docent was very nice and took my son & me to the carriage house which had numerous carriages - well worth the request to see it.

This is a really nice place to spend a day. They have a Civil War reenactment, which usually takes place the second weekend in July every year. It is a great place to take your family and learn about history. There are food vendors and lots to do.
