Frederick in Frederick County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Frederick's Carroll Creek
All Saints Street
This street was named for the town's first Episcopal parish and church structure which once stood across the creek. In 1814, the bulk of the white congregation moved to a new location built closer to the courthouse. Four years later, Old Hill Church would be constructed — a place where both whites and blacks would worship together in the Methodist Episcopal faith tradition. In 1864, Black residents took full possession of the church, and in 1868 this would be incorporated as Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church. Old Hill Church served the community until 1921 at which time a new church was built two blocks to the west. By 1900, All Saints Street
