The New York Times once described the area as a “masterpiece in Maryland, the classic American story of home, church, school and work.”
Frederick County continues to impress today, with its prime location, diversified economy and business-friendly regulatory environment.
Located in the northern part of Maryland, between borders with Pennsylvania and Virginia, the county’s landscape includes mountains, Civil War battlefields, a major government installation, high tech industry, prestigious educational facilities and a flourishing city of the same name. The county is also conveniently located within an hour drive of Washington, D.C., Baltimore City and three major airports.
