At the library

Dec 5, 2019

As many of you know, my son and I take a weekly excursion to the local library. It was so cold and windy that day (Tuesday), that we didn’t do our usual walk around. But, I did find a few books that might be interesting to read and share with you.

  • Frederick: The First 250 years 1745-1995 by Timothy L. Cannon, Tom Gorsline and Nancy F. Whitmore
  • Haunted Hikes: Spine Tingling Tales and Trails from North America’s National Parks by Andrea Lankford
  • Your Maryland by Ric Cottom
  • Looking Back: True Stories of Mountain Maryland by James Rada, Jr.,
  • Frederick County Characters: Innovators, pioneers and patriots of Western Maryland by John W. Ashbury

Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with this! If I find something interesting enough to share, I will. But it won’t be the only thing I focus on, either.

So, on the way home, we had to take a detour. Traffic was so backed up on the road we would normally take (I think a trash truck was blocking the road and slowing things down) that we went a different way. Which took us by the old armory in Frederick. It’s not the best picture, but it will do for now.

Sometime in the near future, when we’re downtown, I will get a better picture from the cross street, which is actually South Bentz Street. Maybe even venture into the park…

Frederick Armory
  • built in 1913 for the Maryland National Guard
  • originally built for Company A, 1st regiment of the Maryland National Guard
  • This unit traces their roots back to a band of Frederick rifleman led by Michael Cresap who fought in the Revolutionary War
  • In 2001 the old Armory building was converted into use as a community and meeting center for the City of Frederick Recreation Department – William R. Talley Recreation Center. You can read his obituary here
just a lady bug on me!
