Historic Preservation Guidelines in Frederick Md

Are you interested in living in the Historic District in Frederick? The Historic District is regulated by the Frederick Historic Preservation Commission, which was established in 1998 to safeguard the historical and cultural heritage of the City of Frederick’s Historic District. The Historic Preservation Commission must review and approve all exterior work in any historic property, except for minor rehabilitation, which is specified in their documents. The Commission then makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners.

The Historic District was placed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1973 and the boundaries were expanded in 1988. There are 2 historic areas in Frederick, each with slightly different guidelines. Here is a map of the Frederick Town Historic District and the Downtown Frederick Area:

Frederick Town Historic District Design Guidelines were approved by the Historic Preservation Commission in November 2008. These guidelines established provisions “to ensure that all properties in the Historic District are rehabilitated to best preserve their essential historic qualities and that new construction is sensitive to the scale and historic nature of the Historic District.”
