154 W. Patrick St., Frederick Maryland 21701
This house was rebuilt in 1927 as a replica of the Fritchie house destroyed by the repeated flooding of nearby Carroll Creek. Material salvaged when the house was torn down in 1868 was used to recreate the structure. According to legend, 95 year old Barbara Fritchie dauntlessly waved her Union flag as General Stonewall Jackson and his troops marched through town in 1862. The reputed events inspired John Greenleaf Whittier's poem `Barbara Fritchie`. The house contains original furnishings and artifacts.
Open Monday, Thursday through Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 1pm-4pm.
