“Great history in heritage home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great historical society with excellent research center for those with passion for past. Located in home of original leader of Hood College and then John Loats who was key layman behind building of Evangelical Lutheran Church (275 year old church accross the street) and establishment of orphanage in this home following his death. He left bequest that cared for orphans, city, and those in need. Harry Grove stadium & School of Deaf facilities are located on land donated by this humanitarium.
John Loats is part of Frederick historical leaders like Francis Scott Key, John Hanson (first president of Contential Congress), Charles Carroll (only Catholic to sign Decaration of Independence), Roger Taney (first Catholic chief justice of Supreme Court that also decided Dred Scott case), and Barbara Fritchie to name a few.

“Not as Interesting as Some other Civil War sites in the area.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

The title sort of sums it up. The staff was very help and friendly but there just is not a lot to see here.
