William Shakespeare posed the immortal question: What’s in a Name? Well Frederick, Maryland has plenty of places and things named after mere mortals that once walked our streets. In fact, many of our streets are even named after former citizens and community leaders. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn more about the place we live through the many names that adorn our city streets, parks, buildings, businesses, and neighborhoods. And what better place to do this than Mount Olivet Cemetery, once dubbed “Frederick’s Other City.” Award-winning writer/researcher/documentarian Chris Haugh will explain how, and why, these names came about as he introduces you to the former citizens behind the monikers. Bring your walking shoes as we plan to cover a few miles through the winding roads and lanes of Frederick’s historic, garden cemetery. We will meet at the Key Memorial Chapel just beyond the Francis Scott Key Memorial. There is ample parking in the circle drive around the chapel as students can park here. We will have no problem socially distancing, and the fresh air and exercise will be a bonus. Rain date: 6/14
