To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation, Master Docent 2022 attendees will have the opportunity on Sunday, February 27 to attend open houses at the three Landmarks properties: Schifferstadt Architectural Museum (ancestral home of the Brunner family), the Beatty-Cramer House (Mt. Pleasant), and Zion Church (Urbana).  Joe Lubozynski, THE Beatty-Cramer expert, will be hosting at that property.  Schifferstadt recently reopened on a limited basis after being closed for nearly two years, while the Beatty-Cramer House and Zion Church are rarely open to visitors.  Schifferstadt and Beatty-Cramer are two of the oldest houses in the County.  These three properties tell the story of three different migration patterns into Frederick County. Take advantage of this unique opportunity. The properties will be open from 1-5 p.m. Further registration is not required, simply stop by the properties. 

Frederick County Landmarks Foundation (FCLF) requests all eligible individuals entering any FCLF properties be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Masks are required for all visitors over age two while in FCLF owned properties.
