You have to go to Verrins Kirche. We were met by a 94 year old historian. He was a hoot !! He was so informative and funny. We both decided he was definitely a highlight of our trip and we so glad we snuck in for a look around.

nice overview and some interesting collections. Check out the secret found by the first letter of a number of street names, it is discussed on a panel to your left after you enter.

Everyone should stop in here when in Fredericksburg. The curators had lots of interesting stories. It was free, but they accept donations.

Great find for history buffs; not your typical tourist trap. The sculptures, dioramas and artifacts were in excellent condition.

Well documented overview of the early history of Fredericksburg. In conjunction with the Pioneer Museum Complex visitors get an excellent representation of the early days of the Fredericksburg area and community.

The relocated church building has a nice expo inside giving some historic perspective to the establishment of the town and its people through the ages. Nicely done...but they need to sort out the difference between Dutch (the Netherlands) and Deutsch and therefor German and Germany. They also have a nice selection of souvenirs.

The knowledgeable volunteer who greeted us at the desk also gave us some information about the pictures and artifacts in the museum while giving us some history on Fredericksburg's history. It was a mini museum with lots... More

An older couple greeted me as I went into the church and the lady told me the history of the building and early settling of Fredricksburg. She knew her history well and I enjoyed hearing it from someone who was obviously of German descent (she pronounced all the German words correctly and I asked her if she was of German... More

This was the church/meeting ground during the early settler days in Fredericksburg. The structure itself is interesting, and that is what we thought it was - just a structure. Actually, it's a small history museum with lots of interesting period artifacts and memorabilia. Make sure you find the poster advertising for Germans to come settle and how much land they... More
