Exploring Frederick’s Local History

The Enduring Legacy of Frederick Attorneys

Frederick, Maryland was founded in 1745 and boasts an expansive history that can be witnessed in its County Courthouse, established in 1748. This landmark has played an essential role in Frederick’s legal and civic life and witnessed its transition from colonial settlement to Civil War battlefield.

Frederick’s courthouse has been central to both strategic and legal considerations during American history, representing Frederick as an integral player. Since its original construction it has undergone multiple renovations reflecting both community growth and legal requirements.

At its center stands the Frederick County Courthouse as a symbol of its city’s place in American legal history, both as a functioning court and historical landmark that symbolizes Frederick’s resilience and historical importance.
