Everyday doors in Frederick

Frederick

From Baltimore take an hour’s drive west on I-70 and you will come to Frederick, Md. the county seat of Frederick County. Or drive up I-270 from Washington DC and you will arrive at the same place. Frederick is a nice destination for a weekend’s drive at any time of year. A few miles west of Frederick lies the Catoctin and Appalachian Mountain, nice hiking areas. But stay in town and you will find a lively community centered on Market St and Carroll Creek. More on Carroll Creek in some future post, but nor now journey with me as I strolled east of Market looking for interesting doors. Not grand doors on famous cathedrals but more common doors. Some of them are colorful, others just utilitarian, but worth noticing.

    I’ve been to Frederick a couple of time….about 35+ years ago. Beautiful photos and colors.

    Thanks for joining us this week Mike!
    This is a lovely assorted collection. My fave has got to be that cute fire hydrant door.
    If you haven’t already, don’t forget to swing by and add your link to our link-up list; look for the blue “froggie” button near the end of my post.
    Cheers πŸ™‚
