This new series will highlight a variety of transformative projects within The City of Frederick. These projects provide a significant change through capital investment, improving community conditions, expanding access to employment, or more.
Our first project provides a look back at the rehabilitation of the historic mansion and former Robert E. Dailey and Son Funeral Home located at 1201 North Market Street. New York New York Salon & Day Spa owner Mary Louise Riser purchased the property and embarked on a two-year renovation and complete rehabilitation of the property. The mansion dates back to 1878 and is now the new home for New York New York.
