Photography Monday: Doors of Frederick

Located less than an hour from Washington, D.C., Frederick, Maryland is a charming historic town.  Founded in 1745 by German settlers, Frederick is a city rich in heritage, opportunity, and innovation.  Located between the Civil War battlegrounds of Monocacy, Antietam, and Gettysburg, Frederick was ransomed from burning during the war and became a hospital town for wounded soldiers.

Such a charming, patriotic entrance!

Love how the blue wreath provides contrast against the burnt orange door.

The crisp white door beautifully offsets the brick exterior.

We discovered these doors within the award-winning 40-block historic district that includes parks, neighborhoods and industry.   With a population of 65,000 residents, Frederick is the second largest city in Maryland.  On your next trip to Washington, D.C., must sure you take a side trip to Frederick.  For more information, please visit this site.

Next week, back to D.C. for a potpourri of photos.
