History
Frederick Town” was laid out by Daniel Dulany (a land speculator) in 1745, [ 2 ] and settled by a German immigrant party led by a young German Reformed schoolmaster from the Rhineland Palatinate named Johann Thomas Schley (d. 1790), who came to the Maryland colony with his wife, Maria .

Frederick is home to Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK), which primarily accommodates general aviation traffic, and to the U.S. Army’s Fort Detrick, the largest employer in the county.[ad#co-1]
