Our Vision

Have you ever been in an old building where you can feel the energy of what happened there in days gone by? When we walk into the old Union Mills Manufacturing Company building, we do…and it’s inspiring.

Starting in the late 1800’s, the building housed a factory that made hosiery and men’s shirts. The factory managed to thrive through big challenges, including several world wars and the Spanish flu pandemic, by constantly adapting its products to meet the needs of the world– not as they wanted them to be, but as they were. They were confident enough to be flexible, but focused enough to keep their vision front and center.

Last year, the second pandemic in modern history slowed us down a bit with our plans for the space, But just like the occupants of the Union Mills Manufacturing Company who came before us, we didn’t give up. We found a way to roll with the punches and created a new plan.

You can’t stop the vision when the vision is powerful. We invite you to come with us on our journey while we create the best place in Frederick to celebrate the everyday and the special events with family and friends.
