“Inspirational!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2015

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.

“Full of History.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2015

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

“Apple Dumpling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2015

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.

“Interesting and now more accessible Civil War site.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

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 historic. There are new Historic Markers explaining the events around the famed "alleged" protest by a 95 year old Barbara Fritchie to Confederate General Stonewall Jackson on his Sept. 10, 1862, march through the streets of Frederick, days before the Battle of Antietam. And in a little grove of trees, on the opposite side of the creek, another memorial marker to an 1775 meeting at a nearby tavern of Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and General Edward Braddock, planning the ill-fated attack on Fort Duquesne (present-day Pittsburgh) at the start of the French and Indian War. Seeing these historic sites from the creekside perspective allows you to literally step back in time! Worth an afternoon's excursion if you are in the Frederick City area.
