Frontier Town

Berlin, MD

On two separate occasions within a two-year period of time, Gillis Gilkerson was hired by Frontier Town to construct and renovate structures on their amusement park grounds in Berlin, Maryland.

The first round of construction began in 2018 with the addition of a new ticket booth and pump house. The structures were built to support the client’s new water slides and splash areas added to enhance the Frontier Town water park. The buildings totaled +/- 1,100 square feet and each have wooden frames and Hardie Board siding. The ticket booth was built on a concrete slab and has an asphalt standing seam roof. The pump house includes a basement for storage of the park’s mechanical equipment and features asphalt shingled roofing.

“We travel all over the country and build relationships with many different contractors,” said Gary Brill of the Newman Group. “I have been very impressed with Tyler Barnes. He is very personable and responsive. We were very optimistic about this project and working with Gillis Gilkerson.”

One year later, Frontier Town re-hired Gillis Gilkerson to assist in their park expansion which included 100+ RV pull-through sites and the construction of a +/- 1,885 square foot bathhouse and +/- 5,960 square foot community hall building. The bathhouse has a split-face concrete block exterior wall system and wood truss roof with asphalt shingles. The community hall features a combination of split-face concrete block with Hardie siding and a wood truss roof with asphalt shingles. 

“The Gillis Gilkerson team did a good job keeping things moving despite being hit with a substantial amount of wet weather. They are good at communicating and getting things done.” -Michael Johnson, Construction Manager of the Atwell Group
