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

We had always planned to go into this interesting looking building, but we never made the time. We are so glad we did this trip. It has neat exhibits of early Fredericksburg and the pioneers here.

This was the first church and community club of Fredericksburg and it houses much of the history on how the community and its churches came to be.

Museum was closed because of a climate control fair on the grounds. Didn't want to pay to get into an event we were not interested in. Should have been some way for us to get into the museum.
