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.

Having learned about Barbara Fritchie years ago in elementary school, it is pretty cool to actually see the house. Glad it's still there.
