FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A new online database provides information about historic buildings in the city of Frederick.

The project was completed with a $25,000 grant from the Maryland Historic Trust and includes photographs and other information on about 1,900 properties in the city’s historic district.

Lisa Mroszczyk Murphy, the city’s historic preservation planner, tells the Frederick News-Post that the database lets people “appreciate what was there and what we have now.”

The project involved an architectural historian consultant and the conversion of old slides into digital photographs.

Joe Adkins, the city’s deputy planning director, calls the website “a great resource.”
