We popped in at a whim while walking. It is small, as it was a one-room church from the past. Displays included a German Bible from the 1600's, as well as displays and photos through time including when the railroad was built to Fredericksburg (see Old Tunnel State Park). I recommend it - especially to appreciate the history of Fredericksburg... More

The church is in the market square amidst craft vendors. It was closed today. However, you can imagine how harsh life was as a settlement.

Beautiful Church/Common hall downtown Fredericksburg. The person at the front desk was very friendly and told us a lot about Fredericksburg history.

The building is a replica of the original one room town hall built over a century ago. The exhibit illustrates the past history of Fredericksburg. Quite interesting.

The original Vereins Kirche structure served in many capacities, i.e., a meeting center, a non-denominational church and for a while as city hall. Its unusual shape is most intriguing and reminds me of old Europe. The original structure had to be torn down and rebuilt further back from the present day Hwy. 290, probably because the road needed to be... More

This is a replica of the original Vereins Kirche. It's a good way to find out some of the history about how the German's came to the town. A site well worth your time. Just past the main attractions on Main Street.

This building is a replica of the original church that originally sat in the middle of what is now main street. It has a small but informative museum that tells the history of the original church and the history of Fredricksburg. Mostly an information center on thing to do. It is set in a very nice park that is worth... More

This building is a replica of the original Vereins Kirche but it has the cornerstone of the original building placed within it. Centrally located on Main Street, it is important that you stop here and see what Fredericksburg is all about. The people in Fredericksburg are proud of their heritage and are always willing to answer any questions about their... More
