The Route 40 West corridor, known as the Golden Mile, has the honor of being a gateway into the City of Frederick. Its history is a rich one, rooted in the common goal for the corridor to reach its potential through reinvestment and revitalization thanks to entrepreneurs, caring community members, numerous passionate committees, involved community members, and much more.
The Golden Mile contains a thriving commercial mix—from large box stores, unique small businesses, American and international restaurants to professional firms and organizations. The surrounding Golden Mile community is diverse, unique, with an international flair representing numerous ethnic backgrounds. Many in the Golden Mile community work on the Mile at the many businesses and organization. The commercial businesses serve as the anchors to the Golden Mile economy. The Golden Mile is also home to a wide range of professions —from the traditional sectors of attorneys, realtors and financial advisors to an innovative creative class of information technology providers, architects, graphic designers and artists. These staff members contribute to a unique blend of history and innovation that differentiates Downtown Frederick from other mid-sized city cores. Finally, employees at Golden Mile’s nonprofit organizations add civic and humanitarian dimensions to the local economy.
