This 1800s farmhouse at 1911 North Market St. in Frederick, Md., which today is Sisto's Sewing and Quilting Sudio, is the same building shown on May 1, 1910, at the top of Gallery 10-3. Ninety-eight years ago, N. Market St. (foreground) was the main road to and from Frederick to the northeast. Before construction of what today is U.S. highway 15, which leads to Gettysburg, Pa., northbound travellers left Frederick by turning left onto what today is Routzahns Way.
The door to the home that faces N. Market St. is a side entrance, with the main entry on the front (on the left side of photos old and new). The most noticeable change made to the structure during the last century is the extension of the previously recessed right rear wall to meet the wall with the side entrance.
Scouting done and photograph taken by Charlie Gauthier and J. Ray Frank in February 2008.
