We walked around the perimeter after closing time.

We walked around the perimeter after closing time. You can tell the town loves its history. We learned the meaning of "Vereins."

Conveniently located in the center of the MarktPlatz - Fredericksburg's Town Square - The "VK" as it's known locally is a replica of the original building constructed by the original German settlers of Fredericksburg to serve as a Town Hall, meeting place, and shared church. In a very small area it offers a concise history of the community. Best thing... More

We loved visiting this museum the last time we were in Fredericksburg. It has a lot of the local history of the founding of the town.

This is a small, historical site in the downtown area. For history, culture enthusiasts, it may be of interest. This is the type of place you mosey through after lunch, not really a main attraction. It is conveniently located to the main tourist area so easy access for a little break.

The Vereins Kirche Museum is located in a historically accurate reproduction of the first building in Fredericksburg. The original Vereins Kirche served as the town's church, school, and gathering place. The small museum is an excellent place to learn more about the founding and growth of Fredericksburg and the volunteer at the desk was very helpful and informative. The museum... More

It's small, but has very interesting local history. Probably not great for kids, but for adults with any interest in history it's definitely worth a stop.

Visiting this little museum provided us with a wealth of information on the local area. Staff member working on a Thursday afternoon shared some local info and was very proud of her home. Worth our time to visit.

It's free! The hostess is friendly & is happy to answer your questions. Doesn't take long to go through the great, little exhibits of the local history. Look at as much or little as you like.
