Trip to Frederick, Hagers
town and Harpers Ferry
' v Full of Historic Interest.
A* vi
Landscapes that feast the eye, sites
. that touch the heart, roads that are
matched by few' throughout the coun
try await the motorist who would
tour northern Maryland! A drive of
a few hours leads to historic moun
tains, famous battlefields, quaint
towns and enchanting l>eauty spots.
This is the route this week of The
Star's special motor tour—to Fred
erick, Hagerstown, Harpers Ferry and
the Antietam battlefield.
Although not unfamiliar to *he ex
perienced AVashington motor tourist,
this trip, because of the splendid roads
and the inspiring country, bears repeti
tion. Along its course there are spots
at which the motorist will want to
linger and pay tribute to the won
ders of nature and the deeds of men.
Leaving the District line at Chevy
t'hase Circle, rather than byway of
A\ iseonsin avenue, which is being
v paved, the road leads to Rockville.
Here the motorist has the choice of
taking what is termed the back route,
paralleling for a considerable distance
the Potomac River, or the more fa
miliar route byway of Gaithersburg.
Damascus and Ridgeville. Roth are
approximately equi-distant front Fred
erick and both are recommenced by
the touring experts of the Antericun
Automobile Association.
Fork at Hendersons Corner.
Along the old route, about 25 miles
from AVashington. at Hendersons
Corner, is another fork, both branches
of which lead to Frederick. The road
leading to the northwest, byway of
Clarksburg, is approximately seven
miles shorter, but a portion of it near
Hyattstown is under construction.
This road is part of the Old National
Reverting to the main route, the
» road leads to Damascus, remembered
by motorists as the place of the
■'sharp turn.” Six miles ahead is
Ridgeville, from which point on lies
beautiful, rolling Maryland country.
Stretching almost directly west from
Ridgeville. the road passes through
N'ew Market, a quaint, one-street vil
lage, crossing the Monocaev River
over the old Stone Jug Bridge, and
into Frederick, a distance of 51.3 miles
from the National Capital.
Frederick is one of Maryland's
larger towns. It is the same Fred
erick the poet AVhittier mentioned
when he wrote his undying “Barbara
Frietchie.” Here is the grave of that
immortal character and a marker in
dioates the spot where stood her home.
Here. too. are buried the remains of
Francis Scott Key, and a monument
** . erected to the memory of the author
of the “Star Spangled Banner" stands
at the entrance of Frederick’s Mount
Olivet Cemetery.
This town knows the sound of mar
tial feet. Not only in the Civil War
did the soldiers, both Union and Con
federate, trod its streets, but also in
the AA’ar of 181,2 it suffered much dev
astation at the hands of the Brit
