Frederick County is a very special place today.  Did you know that it has been special to people for thousands of years?  Long before the first English settlers made their way up the Potomac river from the tidewater regions of Maryland some three hundred years ago, Native American Indians called this special place home.  The story of these Native American inhabitants of what we now call Frederick County is known only through archeology.  For nearly forty years, the State Archeologist's office has been investigating prehistoric sites in Frederick County.  Come hear what we've learned about the Native American prehistory of this special place through the archeological study of sites from the shores of the Potomac River to the Pennsylvania line.

Please register at if you think you might be attending.
