Ok.... this place is a must! Looks a bit hokey from the front but the Museum is done so well! The Carriage House overlooks the first Civil War Hospital called The Hessian Barracks. You will walk away from this spot with a great insight of why Frederick, MD is on the map. ....and, you're welcome…

I learned that the way we triage patients in ED's in hospitals today originated in Frederick during the Civil War. Most of the downtown churches were transformed into hospitals for over a year during the War. This is a must-see.
