Baltimore might be known as the Monument City but to George A. Frederick’s descendents it will always also be home to many of our great-great uncle’s works.
What is astonishing is that many of his works extend beyond Baltimore—and many still stand. Frederick’s works ranged from the whimsical and fanciful park structures that evoke a romanticism considered exotic in the 19th century, to the stately Baltimore City Hall, a crown of architectural and municipal achievement.
In our research of Frederick’s life and works, the Internet has opened many doors and provided numerous clues to his works; however, much of our research has uncovered conflicting design claims—and left many unanswered questions.
We have tried to document the inconsistencies as much as we can in this tribute to his works. In hopes that by publishing this tribute, we hope visitors can help us with information and photos to further complete this website. Feel free to email us with any information you have.
Enjoy your visit!
