My daughter and I visited here during a Christmas open house. Very interesting to see how people lived at a different period in our history.

Oh, well. This is not the real house; Barbara Fritchie was not the real heroine; a descendant of an eye witness says “Stonewall Jackson riding ahead” is false; and the museum is closed, having passed to private ownership. But, you know, the entire episode related by John Greenleaf Whittier is such a part of Americana, and the spirit expressed is... More

Although many felt this was a fun place to go, I found the décor and food average, at best. The tables and chairs felt very banquet-ish and the food was just okay. Don't plan to go back.

There are clear and informative signs outside. The place is tiny but a visitor gets the feeling Barbara is in the next room. There was a docent inside who was fantastic about further facts. He engaged the young and old. Great place to stop in.

On the outside, you see a very small house. On the inside, you see so much history. The place is very well preserved.

Try the Apple Dumpling. It is so delicious. You might have to wait 5 minutes or so to be seated, but your food will be brought out with a smile and trust me when I tell you that all of it is very tasty.

While the Barbara Fritchie House has long been a staple tourist draw for the City of Frederick, it had seen better days and was difficult to access on foot. Now with the opening of the connecting greenway and promenade along Carroll Creek (links Downtown Frederick with Baker Park), approaching the Barbara Fritchie House on foot is very pleasant, scenic and...

This is a tiny, very cute little house and museum. It is not always open, but try to visit if you are in Frederick. The whole story of Barbara Fritchie is fascinating.
