Frederick's Hotel Block

This part of downtown Frederick has long been a place of lodging and hospitality for travelers along the National Road. Kimball's Inn, Talbott's Tavern, the City Hotel and the Francis Scott Key Hotel have occupied this site for over two hundred years.

Among the many notable travelers was Revolutionary War hero, Frenchman Marquis de Lafayette. He was a visitor to Frederick on a triumphal tour of America. "He was received with pomp and parade. He last night attended a public dinner at Talbott's Tavern. He is now receiving the citizens and strangers at Talbotts & tonight he will attend a ball at Talbotts. Our whole town is in an uproar all about Lafayette." This news was recored by Jacob Engelbrecht on December 30, 1824. He was an observer who left behind a vivid record through his diaries, of life along the 19th century National Road.
