Frederick among cities hailed for preservation

July 18, 2002

The National Trust for Historic Preservation named the city of Frederick yesterday to its annual list of "America's Dozen Distinctive Destinations."

In recognizing Frederick, the organization singled out its collection of Federal, Georgian and Victorian buildings and the Courthouse Square; Rose Hill Manor Children's Museum, which focuses on 19th-century life; and Baker Park, a 44-acre park with recreational trails and an amphitheater used for free performances in the summer.

The city was one of 12 chosen this year based on criteria such as well-managed growth and a commitment to preservation.
