LETTER

from the editor Happy Winter, Frederick County! This season, we’re celebrating the historic town of New Market. Located on the eastern side of the county, New Market was founded in 1793, and a little less than 100 years later, in 1975, the town was named to the National Register of Historic Places. Many community members have lived in the town for generations, and the current mayor calls it “a nice, quaint, but happening little town that is basically a can’t-miss.” Read all about it starting on Page 56.

Donna Elbert

As cold weather continues, you may want to hunker down and cozy up with a good book. You’re in luck, because the county is home to dozens of Little Free Library boxes, where you can find a new book (for free) and share some of your well-loved tomes with others. Find out more about the movement starting on Page 12.

COMMUNITY \\

TAKE A BOOK, Share a Book Maybe you’ve seen one, driving around Frederick County: a small box, usually on a pedestal, stacked with books inside, and a sign announcing “Little Free Library,” beckoning you to “take a book, share a book.” The Little Free Library movement began in 2009 in Wisconsin, and has since spread to all 50 states and at least 88 countries around the world. Todd H. Bol created the first Little Free Library to share books with his neighbors, and the response was so overwhelming, he crafted a vision for a community-led grassroots movement for literacy. Little Free Library became a nonprofit organization and spread its mantra of inspiring a love of reading around the world. More than 75,000 Little Free Libraries now exist, sharing millions of free books among neighbors. And dozens of them have popped up around Frederick County, too. A searchable map of nearby Little Free Libraries on the nonprofit’s website shows one in Wolfsville, two near Walkersville and two near Myersville, one near Adamstown, and 11 around the City of Frederick. A few of the libraries in the county are sponsored by local businesses. At Grifols Biomat USA Frederick, staff decided to create their own Little Free Library in September 2017. Their idea grew into a team effort with donors, and the actual library box was made to look like one of the plasma donation machines used in the center. The Little Free Library was dedicated to the community in November 2017.

One of the most recent additions to Frederick’s Little Free Library scene is at Lebherz Oil & Vinegar Emporium (L.O.V.E.) in Downtown Frederick. At L.O.V.E., the Little Free Library, which they dubbed the Cookbook Nook, is dedicated completely to cookbooks. They

envision their Little Free Library as a community-oriented resource to help promote healthy eating and home cooking in Frederick. You can find it on North Market Street. According to the Little Free Library national organization, people of widely diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds participate PHOTOGRAPHS BY MOLLY FELLIN SPENCE

Hillcrest Pharmacy on West Patrick Street in Frederick also hosts a Little Free Library. The library is located inside the pharmacy and is positioned so that customers can take care of their “health care needs (and) … grow their imagination through the love of reading and books.”


// C O M M U N I T Y

in the grassroots effort, and many public and school librarians support the concept and role of Little Free Libraries as outreach tools for reading motivation. And real estate agents have said that libraries (big and small) have influenced potential home buyers to decide to settle on one neighborhood rather than another. Little Free Library’s Impact Library Program provides no-cost Little Free Libraries to communities where they can help improve reading motivation and deepen community connectedness. In 2017 the program placed 350 Little Libraries around the U.S., thanks to individual donors, organizational partnerships and revenue from Little Free Library’s retail sales. Recipients have included the Illumination Foundation, a homeless shelter in Santa Ana, California, where there is only one public library and no bookstores for more than 335,000 residents; a family in Illinois who is committed to “rebuilding a broken city one block at a time;” and a vice principal of a school in a Georgia town where 30 percent of the residents cannot read. In October 2018, Little Free Library founder Todd Bol died, but the organization stated that the movement would continue. In a New York Times article, Margret Aldrich, a spokeswoman for Little Free Library, said: “Todd created this beautiful, living, breathing movement of literacy and community that resonated from that very first Little Free Library all the way to today… He was a true believer in the power of one person to make a difference. And he certainly did.”

TIPS FOR BUYING OR SELLING A HOME in the wintertime

BY BRENDA FISHER, FREDERICK COUNTY ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER

No matter what time of year you’re looking to buy or sell real estate, choosing a local Realtor to assist you with such an important decision should be your first step. Traditionally, the spring season is the best time of year to sell your home because yards look better, trees and flowers are in bloom and families with school-age children can time their move accordingly. If you find yourself in a position to buy or sell a home while winter has its icy grip on Frederick County, don’t despair! There are some distinct advantages to buying or selling real estate when the weather turns cold.

Motivated Sellers The goal of any real estate transaction is to negotiate a fair price. Many sellers are motivated at this time of year to get their home sold quickly, which can mean they are more willing to negotiate on selling price, closing costs, the terms of the sale or the closing date. Many people who buy during the winter think they are going to get an amazing deal. Don’t fall into the trap of low-balling your offer just because of the season. Lowball offers can backfire and may end up costing you your dream home. A Realtor can help you present a competitive offer with a fair price.

Less Competition Since the real estate business traditionally slows down in the fall and winter, it’s an excellent time to buy because there will probably be less competition. Depending on the location and price point, this also means there is less of a chance that a property will have multiple offers.

Don’t Forget to Use Your Imagination Even the most pristine property can look a little drab in the winter. If you can see the property for what it could be, rather than what PHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY OF FREDERICK COUNTY ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS ©

it currently is, you could be at a definite buying advantage. Sellers should consider using photos taken during other seasons to help potential buyers see the home in all its glory. “Sellers are all on the same playing field in the winter as all homes are a bit drab on the outside,” said Frederick County Association of Realtors President Maureen Nichols. “A winter seller who provides photos of what the outside looks like in the spring, summer and fall will be a step ahead of their competition.”

Be Flexible

iSTOCKPHOTO.COM / WWING

Winter weather can be unpredictable, which can make house hunting a little challenging. If you’re waiting on new construction, it can also cause delays. Most tradesmen work during the winter, but there are some projects that can’t be done if the temperature is too low. The more flexibility you have during the winter, the better off you’ll be. Buying or selling real estate is one of the biggest financial transactions you will make in your lifetime. Make sure you have the benefit of a local Realtor to help you through the process.

+ Remember, not every real estate agent is a Realtor. A Realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors and guided by the standards of the Realtors Code of Ethics. Local Frederick County Realtors are members of the Frederick County Association of Realtors, the Maryland Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.

SBA LOANS CAN HELP FINANCE Small Business Dreams BY JENNIFER TYLER, ASSISTANT VICE PRESIDENT, COMMERCIAL LOANS, FREDERICK COUNTY BANK

When it’s time to grow and expand your business, you need a loan that works with you and for you. As one of Frederick’s leading community banks, Frederick County Bank (FCB) is dedicated to helping local businesses, individuals and families manage, save and enjoy their money. In order to best serve the community, FCB offers a wide range of business and personal financial products. For Frederick small business owners who dream of growing their business, Frederick County Bank and the Small Business Administration (SBA) are here to help.

Use an SBA Loan to: • Purchase equipment or inventory. • Purchase owner-occupied commercial real estate. • Finance construction or renovation. • Obtain short- and long-term working capital. • Refinance debt.

The SBA was created to assist and protect the interests of small business owners throughout the country. Their services range from education and training to government contracting and advocacy. Perhaps their most recognizable product is the SBA loan. SBA loans are partially backed by the government, meaning lenders, such as Frederick County Bank, can provide them with easier qualifications, extended terms, and lower down payments than a conventional business loan. While the Small Business Administration does not lend money directly to small businesses, it sets guidelines for its partnering lenders and provides a partial guarantee that it will repay a portion of the loan if the business cannot make its loan payments. This reduces the risk for lenders and makes it easier for small businesses to obtain financing.

20

Who Can Use an SBA Loan? Finding traditional financing for your business can be a personal and complicated process. One of the major benefits of SBA loans is the basic qualifications, which make the lending process easy to understand. If you run a small, for-profit business in Frederick that does business in the United States and has invested equity, you may qualify for an SBA loan through Frederick County Bank.

How Can Businesses Use an SBA Loan?

Find the Right SBA Loan for Your Business

SBA loans offer flexible loan terms and the ability to use the financing for a wide range of business expenses, making it a beneficial option for many small businesses. Depending on the program, qualified business owners can apply for up to $5.5 million in financing to grow and expand their already established business.

Since no two businesses are the same, the Small Business Administration collaborates with commercial lenders, such as Frederick County Bank, to offer multiple SBA loan programs for small businesses depending on their financial needs.

Benefits to Borrowers: • Ability to secure financing on terms and conditions not otherwise available. • Capitalize fees into loan. • Extended term permanent financing. • Maximize cash flow. • Minimum down payment of 10 percent.

SBA Express Program

SBA Veteran Advantage Program

The SBA Express program offers expedited turnaround times on loan determinations, so borrowers get a faster decision. This SBA product awards loans of up to $350,000 to support business operation or for short-term working capital.

The SBA Veteran Advantage loan is for active-duty military, veterans or their spouses. The program offers discounted guarantee fees and can be used to obtain loans up to $350,000.

SBA 7(a) Program

Sharon and Charles Riser built The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School in Downtown Frederick with the vision of creating a place for students to learn the latest techniques and skills in salon service. To make this dream a reality, they turned to Frederick County Bank for an SBA loan to purchase and renovate their 15,000-square-foot building. Thanks to their SBA loan, the Risers have helped more than 1,600 students become working professionals.

SBA 7(a) loans are typically the most popular SBA product. This loan can give business owners between $350,000–$5 million to purchase equipment or inventory, purchase owner-occupied commercial real estate, finance construction or renovation, obtain permanent working capital, or to refinance debt. SBA 504 Program The goal of the SBA 504 program is economic development and job creation. Businesses can apply for up to $5.5 million under this program, but the final award amount will be determined based on the loan’s ability to create jobs within your business. This loan can be used to acquire long-term fixed assets, purchase equipment or inventory, refinance loan-term fixed asset debt, finance working capital, and reduce energy consumption by upgrading to renewable energy resources.

The Local Impact of SBA

SBA loans through Frederick County Bank can be a major benefit for local small businesses looking to expand and grow. Disclosure: All Frederick County Bank loan products are subject to underwriting and credit approval. Frederick County Bank’s trade area is primarily Frederick County. Backed by Holtmeyer & Monson.

KINDNESS MATTERS FCPS looks to build student and teacher resilience BY TERRY ALBAN, SUPERINTENDENT, FREDERICK COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Kindness matters at Frederick County Public Schools. It’s widely understood that emotions and learning are strongly connected. We know that adverse childhood experiences, which mental health professionals abbreviate to ACEs, can impede a student’s ability to learn. We also know that acts of kindness, along with caring, supportive and sensitive environments that create feelings of calm and safety, increase learning. Physical changes that result from stress or well-being mean, in short, that calm bodies lead to calm minds able to focus attention on learning. Just as calm students are better learners, adults are better teachers when they cultivate practices to feel calm. Teachers are less likely to feel frustrated in response to negative behavior and more likely to try to help a student whose self-control is compromised when they shift their thinking from an attitude that asks, “What is wrong with this student?” to a perspective that seeks to understand “What has happened to this student?” When teachers recognize how ACE factors affect a student’s behavior and compromise the student’s self-control, they are more likely to use kind regard and the quiet words that, combined with quiet space and time for students to compose themselves, lower a stress response and foster resiliency. These are some of the reasons mental health professionals recommend instituting regular, consistent mindfulness activities as part of a school’s daily curriculum. The goal is to support quiet spaces that foster self-regulated calming as an alternative to relying only on disciplinary practices to promote positive behavior. While it is recommended that schools retain typical recess opportunities for exercise that helps reduce harmful responses to stress, a simple change such as adding yoga to physical education can yield healthy results. Additional activities that teach and encourage self-care for staff and students are relaxation and breathing techniques, reducing negative self-talk and increasing positive self-talk. Frederick County Public Schools’ counselors and psychologists have completed training to better understand and educate traumatized 22

students. FCPS Psychological Services Supervisor Ann McGreevy and newly hired Mental Health Coordinator Lynn Davis have provided training for school administrators, teachers, behavior specialists, transportation staff, parents and others.

Almost two-thirds of adults have experienced at least one adverse childhood experience, or ACE, described in this article. People who have experienced four ACEs are: • 2 times more likely to smoke • 4 times more likely to become alcoholics • 7 times more likely to inject street drugs • 12 times more likely to attempt suicide Exposure to one type of violence doubles the risk of others. Life expectancy can be lower for individuals with six or more ACEs by as much as 20 years. Source: According to the National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV II)

Training provides a common language for understanding the impact of ACEs, with special attention to experiences such as emotional or physical neglect or abuse, sexual abuse, living household, separation/divorce, household substance abuse or mental illness, or an incarcerated family member. Poverty, social

isolation, community violence, bullying and parental verbal aggression are also factors. Strong, prolonged and frequent toxic stress elicits a persistent fear response in everyone, but especially in children. Although this can result in difficulty regulating impulses and emotions, with the proper types of support, recovery and resilient adaptation are definitely possible. FCPS has a simple and effective approach to these serious issues: Classrooms that feel calm and safe — where positive discipline reinforces good behavior and where routines create a caring environment — lead to reduced suspensions and increased productivity and focus. The benefits — school engagement and success in childhood leads to healthy outcomes that can last a lifetime.

BREAST CANCER SCREENING PROGRAM Receives Donation from Team H.O.P.E. The Frederick County Health Department Breast Cancer Screening Program received a $20,000 donation from Team H.O.P.E. Team H.O.P.E. is a Frederick County organization that formed in January 2008. Between 2008 and 2011, Team H.O.P.E. donated more than $140,000 to cancer research on a national level. In December 2011, Team H.O.P.E. became a nonprofit organization so it could turn its focus to Frederick County and the needs in our local community. Since becoming a nonprofit, Team H.O.P.E. has partnered with Dr. Julian Choe, Michelle Cooper, CRNP, Community Radiology Associates and the Frederick County Health Department, donating more than $164,000 and providing care for more than 900 women. The funds donated to these partners covers the cost of clinical breast exams and any needed breast imaging for women who are either under-insured or have no insurance at all and fall outside of the parameters for care being offered through the Breast Cancer Screening Program due to age or income level. The Breast Cancer Screening Program serves low-income women who are uninsured or under-insured and are Frederick County residents. Health Department Public Health nurses navigate clients through the process of receiving a clinical breast exam and mammogram by contracted physicians in the community. This year the Maryland Department of Health Breast Cancer Screening Program received a $1 million funding reduction from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This reduction has affected local Breast Cancer Screening programs across the state including the Frederick program.

County Health Department.

There are currently 147 women due for breast cancer screenings this year who are not covered due to this funding cut. The Team H.O.P.E. donation will cover 63 screenings, reducing the shortfall by 47 percent. “We are very thankful that over 60 women who otherwise would not have been served will now receive their breast cancer screening due to this generous donation,” said Beth Mowrey, program manager of the Breast Cancer Screening Program. “This is really important because we know that early detection saves lives.”

Get Help to Live Healthy The Frederick County Health Department is accepting new participants into its next “I’m Living Healthy” program. “I’m Living Healthy” is for adults who are at risk for or diagnosed with high blood pressure or diabetes.

Additionally, preliminary results from the Frederick County 2018 Community Health Assessment show that the majority of respondents (62 percent) report getting 15 minutes or less of exercise a day. Low levels of physical activity increase one’s risk for health problems like high blood pressure and diabetes. Clients receive four weeks of educational classes on a variety of topics related to diabetes and hypertension followed by four weeks of group coaching with a Registered Nurse and Community Health Educator.

“I’m Living Healthy” is a no-cost program that increases clients’ confidence, motivation, and readiness for making decisions and taking action to change their health.

The first eight-week program of the new year began Jan. 11. Sessions are held on Fridays from 2-3 p.m. at the Frederick County Health Department. Pre-enrollment is required.

Diseases of the heart and diabetes are among the top 10 leading causes of death in Frederick County. These conditions contribute to serious illness and disability and decreased quality of life.

To determine eligibility and enroll, call Christine Pelkowski at 301-600-3113 or email CPelkowski@FrederickCountyMD.gov. Space is limited.

SENIORSCAPES AIMS

To Create Parks for Older Residents The desire to build a public park for older adults in the Frederick region was born the day Sue Paul met a woman about her own age who was caring at home for her two parents, both living with Alzheimer’s disease. As an occupational therapist specializing in home health and dementia, this wasn’t all that unusual for her. “The situation was particularly frustrating because the woman also had two sons. Every day when she and the boys came home from work and school, she never knew what she’d find,” Paul said. “The car could be missing. Her mother might have wandered off. Her father could have the kitchen torn up and lawn mower in pieces. So every night she had to lock all five of them in the house. There was nowhere she could take them, not to the mall, the movies or a restaurant. The boys couldn’t play sports or be with friends. There was literally no place the whole family could go together.” That’s when Paul walked into the mayor’s office in the City of Frederick and said she wanted to build a park designed for seniors. “We have parks for toddlers, and parks for basketball/baseball/ soccer players, and parks for skateboarders, and even parks for dogs. But where is the park for largest, fastest-growing, tax-paying demographic in Frederick?” The mayor agreed. Then the parks commission agreed. Then the Board of Aldermen agreed. Next, Paul found a location, at Monocacy Village Park, and got the Neighborhood Advisory Council to agree, and got the senior services industry on board. And then the project stalled. “It turns out that funding such a enterprise isn’t as easy as just asking for it,” Paul said. “Especially if you’re just a well-meaning individual with a big idea.” PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY OF SENIORSCAPES

In January 2017, Sue founded SeniorScapes, Inc, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to build senior-centric, accessible public parks that address the physical, cognitive and psychosocial needs of older adults. “The formation of SeniorScapes was crucial in legitimizing the mission and getting a seat at the proverbial table,” she said. “It’s important to realize that this isn’t just about putting a few benches under a tree and calling it a senior park. This is about integrating amenities and services into an aging community, and thinking through exactly what adults need to be able to stay in their homes and active in their neighborhoods. It is even considering what those people in retirement communities, assisted-living facilities, and nursing homes are entitled to…which is have access to the same opportunities to pursue a healthy lifestyle as other citizens.” Paul said she knows older adults very well, and has been working to help with rehabilitation and progressive, chronic disease for a long time. “I know what services are available to seniors and where the gaps are. I know fitness and prevention. I know that by providing a free, accessible outdoor place for any older adult with or without a condition will improve their quality of life,”

she said. “There is just so much research to support the benefits of things like exposure to green spaces, cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, balance training, and socialization. We can build this beautiful destination where families can go and where older adults don’t just sit. Even more, a place where those with cognitive impairment can safely explore the environment without wandering off.” Paul is passionate about this project, and has assembled an experienced board of directors who are equally as dedicated to the cause. SeniorScapes has a created a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the city, and is hoping for final approval in early 2019 in order to break ground this year. Paul says she has engaged with local physicians to get their perspectives on what features would be beneficial to older patients. “What do the folks with orthopedic problems need? What exercises could people with Parkinson’s do at the park? How about heart disease and diabetes? How about those without any impairment who just want to stay fit and ward off disability? This is really about solving a national epidemic and lowering healthcare spending by empowering people to influence their own futures,” Paul said.

S E N I O R S \\

In addition to being an occupational therapist for 27 years, Paul is also a certified health coach, functional aging specialist and a “fitness junkie.” She has a wellness company, WinterWell LLC, where she promotes taking the long view on health and wellness. “We are a society dependent on our healthcare system to keep us well. But interventions like pharmaceuticals and joint replacements are not curative — they’re like big, expensive band-aids on hemorrhaging wounds,” she said. “If we want to fix chronic disease and manage health care costs, we need to change our lifestyles. So if we can integrate the design of our communities with the best preventative and rehabilitative practices, we might be able to make a dent in this crisis.” The features of SeniorScapes parks are unique, to say the least. Covering a quarter to a half-acre of space, the area is fenced in with only one entrance and exit, the design intending to make it easier for caregivers to keep an eye on those with memory impairment. There is general-use fitness equipment, but also

parallel bars and standing stations for those who need a safe place to pull up from wheelchairs or balance during an exercise. There is a 1/3-mile walking path with benches throughout, and also “texture paths” that branch out from the main walking path. These “texture paths” provide opportunities to practice walking on different surfaces or using different muscle groups. For example, there may be path made of loose stones, or one with a series of logs to step over. Each path will have bars to hold on to, so practice is challenging but safe. “Seniors need to practice mobility skills that keep them functioning in the community,” Paul said. “Real life isn’t linear, flat or marked with right angles. Being mobile means being able to go up and down stairs and curbs, navigate an obstacle, and walk or wheel over a ramp. The park will provide opportunities to practice all types of mobility, and address a variety of deficits — whether it is strength, endurance, or balance.” PARK ILLUSTRATION COURTESY OF SENIORSCAPES

As a career-long advocate for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, Paul said she is most excited about the embedded cognitive activities and sensory stations. The activities are designed for brain health, for those with healthy brains and those with struggling brains.

iSTOCKPHOTO.COM / URBANCOW

“Working on memory, attention and executive function while you interact with nature and other humans is so important for brain health,” she said. “And the music stations are a great way to engage the brain and body in a synchronized activity.” SeniorScapes has monthly fundraisers scheduled for 2019, and Paul is eager to share the vision via speaking events and writing opportunities.

ARTS COUNCIL releases Public Art Master Plan The Frederick Arts just released its Public Art Master Plan for Frederick County, with the support of the Ausherman Family Foundation. The full report can be downloaded from the Arts Council website (http://frederickartscouncil.org). In May 2017, the Frederick Arts Council announced the initiative in partnership with the Ausherman Family Foundation and numerous community stakeholders to develop a public art planning process for Frederick County. The process, under the guidance of public art planning consultant Todd Bressi, will allow Frederick to continue deepening its sense of place through public art, develop a coherent set of procedures for placing public art throughout the county, and help create a set of sustainable funding streams for the construction and maintenance of the county’s public art. “This is an enormously exciting prospect for everyone in Frederick who believes in the power of art to strengthen communities,” said Louise Kennelly, Executive Director of the Frederick Arts Council. Bressi, whom the Arts Council and the Ausherman Family Foundation have engaged as a facilitator and guide in this process, leads an innovative design practice that explores the intersection of city design, place planning, and public art. He has received accolades for the planning processes he helped initiate in Athens, Georgia; Montgomery County, Maryland; Santa Rosa, California; and Alexandria, Virginia, among others. “It’s time to be purposeful and strategic about public art in Frederick,” said Marvin Ausherman, chairman and co-founder of the Ausherman Family Foundation. “With the right procedures in place, we will be able to collaborate to use public art as a way to express our community’s identity, making Frederick even more of a special and unique place.” This initiative builds on an established tradition of public art in Frederick which is already well known for pieces such as the Community Bridge, the array of murals downtown, and Sky Stage public art and amphitheater that attracts visitors from near and far.

“We are looking forward to engaging with the community on this which is a first step toward a comprehensive public art plan,” said Michael Campagnoli, president of the Frederick Arts Council. The process took place through the end of 2017 and into 2018. The Arts Council surveyed community needs by circulating a survey that asked people for their ideas about how public art could make Frederick an even better place, and received nearly 300 responses. They published their key lessons learned in the process. The Arts Council asked why public art is important to Frederick and found that people think public art is important because of how it connects with people, conveys an image of Frederick to the broader world, and makes places stand out above the ordinary.

Frederick has history, arts, agriculture that should be promoted. Potential new businesses as well as tourists who come here for day trips from cities would be impressed even more by a commitment to public art. As some people forget, Frederick city has a very diverse culture and it would be great to tie that in the more rural/agricultural areas. Respondents had the most appreciation for murals and for the variety of artworks along the Carroll Creek greenway. In discussing murals, people mentioned many of them throughout the city as well as a few elsewhere in the county (Brunswick and Thurmont), with Community Bridge mentioned most often. The survey asked respondents to rank several responses to this question on a scale of 1 to 5. The results were analyzed by converting each response into a point score, than totaling the points for each response, and average the score across the number of responses. The most highly ranked response was “enhance the appearance of Frederick,” with an average score of 4.59. The second most highly ranked response was “Give pride to residents,” with an average score of 4.43. Three responses were grouped as third most highly ranked: • Expand people’s interest in art (4.36) • Create a wow factor (4.33) • Make a statement about who we are (4.29).

The Frederick public art survey asked respondents what public art they liked the best in Frederick city or county, in an open-ended format. The answers were analyzed by identifying keywords and extracting them. The keywords were then sorted to identify groupings and themes. From the 246 surveys received, 376 key words were identified. Some survey respondents gave more than one answer to the question, and others did not answer it at all. Asked what public art they liked the best in Frederick, survey respondents kept coming back to three main ideas, all of which overlap in how they are experienced in Frederick: Murals, Carroll Creek and bridges. Referring to specific projects, two rose to the top: Community Bridge and Sky Stage. Altogether, 171 responses (45 percent) were related to murals. In discussing murals, respondents mentioned many of them throughout the city as well as a few elsewhere in the County (Brunswick and Thurmont). The Community Bridge was mentioned most often, with 53 responses. Carroll Creek murals in general, the dinosaur on the Church Street Garage, Angels in the Architecture, and unspecified trompe l’oeil each were mentioned multiple times.

RICH HISTORY TO BE FOUND in the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area The Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area (HCWHA) is an area rich in history, covering portions of Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties. It is located just below the MasonDixon Line, generally viewed as the dividing line between North and South. With one foot in the north, and one foot in the south, the story of the Civil War, its causes, battles, heroes and villains ... its very meaning can be told nowhere better than in this part of Maryland. The HCWHA is ideally positioned to serve as “base camp” for driving the popular Civil War Trails and visiting the battlefields and sites of Antietam, Gettysburg, Monocacy, South Mountain, Harpers Ferry, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. The mission of the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area is to promote the stewardship of our historic, cultural, and natural Civil War resources, encourages superior visitor experiences, and stimulates tourism, economic prosperity, and educational development, thereby improving the quality of life in our community for the benefit of both residents and visitors. HCWHA became certified as part of the Maryland Heritage Areas Program in July 2006. It is an independent nonprofit organization guided by a board of directors and an advisory council comprised of representatives of local government units, state and national parks, private organizations and businesses, and individuals from all three counties in the Heritage Area. As a border state with a sizeable pro-Southern constituency, Maryland was a crucial lynchpin for both the preservation of the Union as well as the Southern strategy for independence. The significance of the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area began long before the war broke out. Issues of slavery and states’ rights had strong ties to the nearby Mason-Dixon Line, the 1857 Dred Scott decision, John Brown’s ill-fated insurrection plot at Harpers Ferry, and the hotly contested Presidential election of 1860. Marylanders faced the choice of remaining with the Union or seceding with the South. The state was predominantly pro-Union, but, to ensure the state’s loyalty Abraham Lincoln advised Maryland Governor Thomas 50

Mini-Grant Program The Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area, a certified heritage area encompassing parts of Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties, annually supports a mini-grant program. The Heart of the Civil War offers competitive mini-grants between $500 and $5,000 to heritage sites, nonprofit organizations and government units to develop new and innovative programs, partnerships, exhibits, tours, events and other heritage tourism-related initiatives that are consistent with the goals and priorities stated in the HCWHA management plan (available at heartofthecivilwar. org). Grant-funded projects must take place within the geographic boundaries of the heritage area. The mini-grant guidelines and application form are available online at heartofthecivilwar.org. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Emily Huebner, Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area assistant director, at emily@ heartofthecivilwar.org or call 301-600-4031 to discuss grant projects or application questions. Hicks to convene the 1861 General Assembly in Frederick, where Union sentiment was stronger than in Annapolis. The General Assembly met in Frederick’s Kemp Hall in the spring and summer of 1861 but sputtered to a halt in September after Federal soldiers arrested many pro-Southern legislators to ensure Maryland’s loyalty. With these delegates arrested prior to reaching Frederick, a quorum could not be reached and a vote on secession could not be taken.


Visitors can explore the region’s rich African-American history at Tolson’s Chapel in Sharpsburg, the site of a Freedmen’s Bureau school in the years following the Civil War. Pictured here is the chapel restored to its 19th-century appearance. Photo courtesy of Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area

Post-Emancipation Maryland The origins and meaning of the Civil War are still debated, but one unmistakable result of the bloodshed was made manifest on an April morning in 1868, when eighteen young African American children opened Freedmen’s Bureau school books in Tolson’s Chapel, a sacred place built by an independent and proud African American community in Sharpsburg, Md. Twelve of the youngsters had been enslaved only four years earlier, before Maryland abolished slavery in 1864.The small board-and-batten church, which was built in 1866, became the spiritual and educational center of a vibrant community of African American families in Sharpsburg after the Civil War, and a symbol of their struggles and triumphs.

Tolson’s Chapel holds a significant place in American History Virtually on the grounds of the battle Northerners called “Antietam,” which led President Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, stands the beginnings of a free life and a free community – a church and school – for African Americans. Tolson’s Chapel is a tangible reminder of what the Civil War was about for many Americans, particularly for the four million enslaved on the eve of the war – freedom. Tolson’s Chapel still stands on High Street in Sharpsburg. No longer a functioning church, local historical groups and town residents have pitched in to preserve and save this historic building and adjoining

cemetery. For more information contact the President of the Friends of Tolson’s Chapel, Edie Wallace, at tolsons.chapel@gmail.com.

MAKING HISTORY IN NEW MARKET BY GINA GALLUCCI-WHITE

// F R E DE RI C K C O U N T Y TOW NS

When you think of children playing nowadays, it’s usually with a toy or device that is either battery-filled or technology-focused. Yet when stepping inside the doors of The Original Playhouse in New Market, guests will find none of those available to guests. The main toy for children (and adults) to play with is their own imaginations as they meander through the two-level playhouse, with rooms devoted to different themes such as Art 101, Wonders of Water, Engineerium, Reader’s Theater and an outdoor play garden. “I just think battery-free play is so essential because kids need to be able to invent and imagine their own ways of playing,” says owner Ellen Przybocki. “You see the big tech companies today and you hear about their offices with very playful entities, like skateboards and all kinds of things to stir their creative side. I just think it is a way of figuring things out. It’s a way of being curious. It’s problem solving. “When you have a screen in front of you, it is kind of directing you and telling you what to do and almost how to think and where to go, but if it is just you, an inanimate wooden toy or anything battery-free, it is up to you to figure out what that object is, what the function is, how to play with it and what you want it to be. … It is very important to build that imagination.” PHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY OF THE ORIGINAL PLAYHOUSE Winter 2019 // FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE

F R E D E R I C K C O U N T Y T O W N S \\

Przybocki got the idea for The Original Playhouse after going a children’s museum in Gettysburg. She thought something similar could work in New Market. “I had been teaching for 17 years and was ready for the next chapter,” she says. She opened the space in 2013, and says playhouse is best suited for children between the ages of 3 and 9. The playhouse hosts birthday parties, summer camps, classes and a monthly Parents Night Out event. Last year, a partnership was formed with Frederick County Public Schools to promote “screen-free week” each spring, offering any student who completed the challenge a free child’s pass to the playhouse. “The philosophy for the house is for grown-ups to engage with their kids and offer a playful environment to learn, play and pretend — all at the same time,” Przybocki says. Just next door to the playhouse is Vintage, an elevated comfort food restaurant featuring inventive seasonal dishes as well as favorites such as chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits. “Vintage was opened (in 2014) to create a place where all kinds of people could come together for a great dining experience,” says general manager Lindsey Hamilton. “Inspired and driven by Chef Stephanie Wilson’s culinary passion and talent, Vintage has always been meant to be a place where people would feel

taken care of by delicious elevated dishes and warm hospitality; in a historic building with loads of character.” Wilson grew up on a farm in Washington County cooking with her mother and two grandmothers. “She has always had a passion for creating dishes using fresh local ingredients and always from scratch,” Hamilton says. “Our menu at Vintage very much stays true to this as each dish is carefully created and executed. Many of our dishes have a Southern influence and all of our dishes have Chef Stephanie’s creative twist.” Cocktails also change seasonally, except for some signature drinks such as Vintage Fashion, featuring Bulleit Bourbon, Gran Gala, orange bitters, sugar, a large ice cube with a garnish of an orange and cherry; and Maryland Mule, showcasing the Frederick-based McClintock Distillery Epiphany Vodka, ginger liqueur, lime juice and Barrett’s fiber beer. The restaurant also features a selection of wines, beers on tap and in-bottle and house-made lemonade. “New Market is perfect for us with its community-based events and people,” Hamilton says. “... One of my favorite parts of being in New Market for these past four years or so is watching and being part of the growth here in town. Not only the growth around the town in residential housing, but the activity and businesses that have grown and opened on Main Street. It’s exciting and we’ve been able to watch Main Street come alive.” PHOTOGRAPH BY SPENCE PHOTOGRAPHICS

Located on the eastern side of the county, New Market was founded in 1793 by William Plummer and Nicholas Hall, along a rough wagon trail known as the Baltimore Turnpike. The pair knew the location between trades routes of Baltimore and Frederick, along with a toll-free road and ample water supply would attract people to stay and rest or reside. By 1812, the town was home to both a button factory and nail factory, blacksmith shops, tanneries, inns, taverns and livery stables. Six years later, the Baltimore Turnpike would become part of the National Turnpike and the town formally incorporated in 1878. Just under 100 years later, in 1975, the town was named to the National Register of Historic Places. Current Mayor Winslow F. Burhans III was born and raised in New Market, and he is the seventh generation of his family to call the town home. “We are a nice, quaint, but happening little town that is basically a can’t-miss,” he says. The Main Street area has been undergoing a renaissance during the last few years with improvements made to sidewalks, lighting and storm drainage. “It was all part of making us a tourist friendly, pedestrian-friendly place to be,” Burhans says. In November, the town was designated a Main Street Maryland Community, one of 30 statewide. PHOTOGRAPHS BY MOLLY FELLIN SPENCE

Burhans looks at the town through a long-term lens. “I’m trying to make sure the town is going to be here and viable for the next 200 years so that (when) me and the council pass things off to the next set of town (leaders), we’ve given them something to work with, to build on, to make a future. And I think that is what is important to me is making sure we hand something off to the future generations that is worth having.” Over the years, New Market became known as “The Antiques Capital of Maryland,” with a bevy of shops for locals and tourists to peruse and find historic treasures. Rick Fleshman opened Fleshman’s Antiques in 1989 after growing up watching his parents take part in antique shows. Focusing on furniture, he refinishes period American pieces made between 1810 and 1890 that he finds within 100 miles of New Market. When he goes to shows, he often tells people about New Market’s historic charm. “That’s an attraction, in itself,” Fleshman says. “That always tied in together well with the antiques, but it still is a considerable attraction for people who want to come visit.” The town has since rebranded itself with a new tagline — “Come make some history with us.”

“I’m not going to say we are not an antiques capital, but there is much more to New Market than just antiques,” Burhans says. “There is the livability, dining, shopping, camaraderie of residents. It’s what everybody is trying to build — a whole cohesive community where you can live, eat, shop and work. You can do it all. We felt that was an appropriate tagline.”

BRUNSWICK The once-sleepy City of Brunswick, located along the Potomac River, with close proximity to the C&O Canal, Harper’s Ferry, Antietam, Leesburg and Charlestown, is now filled with a new air of excitement. Residents (about 6,000 currently), business owners and city officials are stepping up efforts to revive and reinvent their community. Seeking to redefine Brunswick as an attractive outdoor destination, they are working to fill empty downtown storefronts, opening new businesses and building trails for hiking and biking. With the city working on a new municipal building, a new music and events venue opening downtown, and the continuous expansion of Brunswick Crossing – a population-doubling housing development – Brunswick may finally be on track to change its fortune from the 1950s, when the railroad pulled out of the city abruptly..

KEY CITY EVENTS: Railroad Days An annual event celebrating the town’s railroad history with passenger train rides, local food, live entertainment, model train exhibits, arts and crafts vendors, passenger train rides, kids’ activities, pony rides and more. Traditionally held on the first weekend of October.

Veterans Day Parade Brunswick’s Veterans Day Parade is one of the oldest in the country. It began in 1932, six years before Veterans Day became recognized as a national holiday. Brunswick is one of only two Veterans Day sites in Maryland to be officially sanctioned by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, which allows official military groups — such as the Armed Forces Color Guard of Washington, D.C. — to participate.

BURKITTSVILLE Burkittsville is a virtually unchanged example of an American townscape of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when the town was a service center for the rural area around it. Today, Main Street’s buildings are still bordered by fields of crops and dairy farms, although there are no longer any commercial establishments in the town. Burkittsville became closely involved with the Civil War when forces of the Union and Confederate armies engaged in the Battle of Crampton’s Gap, a bloody prelude to the Battle of Antietam.

MIDDLETOWN Middletown is a small, rural community steeped in American history. It is located in the beautiful Middletown Valley that stretches between the Catoctin Mountains on the east and South Mountain on the west. A young Lt. George Washington, while surveying the South Mountain area, reported that the valley to the east was one of the most beautiful places he had ever seen. Middletown continues to evolve from a settlement of farmers and ranchers to one of tradesmen, craftsmen, businessmen, clergymen, commuters and retired folk– without losing its agricultural roots. From the stately old Victorian-style homes and soaring church steeples to the rustic dairy farms and modern housing developments, residents find in Middletown a refuge where they can enjoy small-town life as it used to be.

MOUNT AIRY The Town of Mount Airy is a nationally accredited “Main Street Maryland Community” and holds the State of Maryland’s esteemed “Community Legacy” designation. Located directly off of Interstate 70, it is about 45 minutes from both the Baltimore and Washington metropolitan job markets. One can quickly become enamored with downtown Mount Airy and its small-town charm, quaint old buildings and friendliness that takes you back to a time long past. Mount Airy has experienced a dramatic increase in growth, but because of effective growth management and land use strategies, still retains that quaint, small-town atmosphere. It boasts a booming downtown with community and cultural events, retail establishments, antique and craft collectible shops, cafes and restaurants.

WOODSBORO Early history suggests that the Woodsboro area was a hunting and trapping ground for a wandering tribe of Susquehanna Indians. From early times, the settlement was located at a crossroads on the Indian trail running from the Chesapeake Bay to the mountains. When the stagecoach became the primary mode of transportation, the place became an important stop on its itinerary. Today, Woodsboro is still primarily an agricultural area, but an important industry is centered on the three lime quarries that border the town.
