History of Fredericksburg

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.

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 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.

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.
