Bell and History Day

As part of Frederick County’s Bell and History Day an interpretive marker featuring an original illustration by local artist Richard Schlecht was placed in front of 220 West Patrick Street, the former home of Mary Quantrill, a 38-year-old school teacher who waved an American flag from her porch confronting the passing Confederate Army during the Civil War. Today, Quantrill’s home is the site of McCaskill Financial. The plaque was placed with the help of the Tourism Council of Frederick County, McCaskill Financial, the Frederick Woman’s Civic Club and others. Shown after the plaque was unveiled are, from left, Chris Haugh, Tourism Council of Frederick County; Mayor Randy McClement; Scott McCaskill, building owner; and Mikki Stratmyer, Frederick Woman’s Civic Club.
