For a long, long time Patrick Street, also known as Rt. 40 or the National Road was the only way to head west from Baltimore and Washington.  And for many years the Barbara Fritchie Cabins offered travelers or tourists a place to stop.  There used to be quite a few of these units in a courtyard on the south side of Patrick.  The last of those cabins, shown here, are not visible from the street.

According to a plaque on the old Barbara Fritchie Tearoom building , the cabins were in existence from 1933 until 1987.

  1. Wow Bill, I have never seen these. As you noted not visible from the street. Are these cabins in use right now?

    • Lisa, The cabins look like they are used as office space by Way Station. I don’t know this for sure, but that is what it looks like to me. Take care… Bill

  2. When I first moved to Frederick in 1983 I stayed in one of the cabins. At $72 a weak it was quite a bargain.
