Dedicated to Preserving and Interpreting the History of Burkittsville
We invite you to join us in exploring the history of Burkittsville, a small rural community nestled at the base of South Mountain in western Frederick County, Maryland. Our museum, research library, and offices are located in the beautiful Resurrection Reformed Church, an architectural landmark built in 1829, used as a house of worship for the community for over 150 years and the site of a field hospital during the Battles of South Mountain and Antietam. We preserve a growing collection of manuscripts, artifacts, photographs, and other objects from Burkittsville and the surrounding area. In addition to our museum and research library, we host a number of events and programs each year. Membership in the society offers great benefits and the opportunity to join us in celebrating the story of Burkittsville, its people and its landmarks.
