Frederick Maryland is a city in the county of Frederick, Maryland. Part of the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area, Frederick is the second largest city in Maryland and has a population of over 65 thousand residents.
Located at a crossroads that was once an intersection between a series of Native American trails, the city is now home to Frederick International Airport, the largest employer in the county and a main source of transportation for people in the region.
Before being taken over by a land speculator named Daniel Delaney, Frederick was originally populated by members of the Iroquois Confederation. It was surrounded by the Lenape people and, later, the area became known as the Monocacy Trail.
By the early 19th century, Frederick was a hub of justice, inhabited by many important lawyers of the time. It was also known for its large number of churches. On Church Street alone, there were about six major churches of varying kinds.
In 1861, because of the ongoing Civil War, Frederick briefly became the capital of Maryland. The legislature moved from Annapolis to vote on the question of succession. Once they returned, Annapolis was restored as the capital city of the state.
