Just south of the Mason-Dixon Line, in Frederick County, sits the small town of Emmitsburg, Maryland. Home to just over 3,000 households, it’s a growing community with new construction that attracts families who long for quiet countryside but still want easy access to Frederick and Baltimore. The National Shrine Grotto of our Lady of Lourdes is located in Emmitsburg on the campus of Mount St. Mary’s University. Just up Route 15 is the Basilica and National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first natural born U.S. citizen to be canonized as a saint. Next door to the Seton Shrine is the National Emergency Training Center, which includes the National Fire Academy. The National Fallen Firefighters Memorial is located on the grounds as well as the 9/11 Memorial – To Lift a Nation. This small town community offers lots of local shopping and dining as well as quiet corners for reflection.
