Historic Sites and People
The authenticity of Fredericksburg’s historic sites is unmatched throughout the state of Virginia. We are proud to be the childhood home of President George Washington, but there is much more rich history that has defined this great city. Fredericksburg is known for its history, but experiencing the city in person is the only way to fully grasp just how rich and vivid that history is.
