@grouser: It is home to the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation. It is a private non-profit organization that promotes the preservation of historic sites, structures, and natural landmarks in Frederick County. They are the organization that sponsors the barn tour that I used to go on when I could walk better.

This is a magnificent house. Most houses these days have no style as Schifferstadt House has. There are some houses built like this in Ireland, Wales and rural England. Excellent image Elaine. 5*
