“A Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

If you are visiting Frederick, MD, don't miss touring this beautiful home built in the German style. Our tour guide, Pat Miller, was filled with knowledge about both the history & architecture of the home. It was fascinating to see the construction of the home, including clever innovations that were used in the 1700's.

A must-see!

“excellent stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I have toured this house many times over the past 20 years and always enjoy seeing the building and introducing out-of-towners to old Frederick history. The people taking care of the house and the tour change from time to time, but are always friendly and knowledgeable. You can't go wrong here. Please leave them a donation to help with upkeep!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Have lived within walking distance of this museum house for almost 2 decades, can't believe it took me so long to take the Friday night tour which is all about the history and hauntings of the place. Way cool!
