Lewis Store listed on the National Register!

On January 2nd, the Fielding Lewis Store was approved for listing on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), the nation’s official list of historically significant sites, buildings, and structures. The Store was also listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register (VLR) last fall.

The successful nomination was prepared by Cristine Lynch, a recent graduate of the University of Mary Washington’s Historic Preservation Department. You can read the full Lewis Store nomination here.

This Thursday, March 7th at 10:00 am, Cristine will give a presentation on the Lewis Store and it's nomination at the Central Rappahannock Library (1201 Caroline Street). Thank you to the Washington Heritage Museums for putting this presentation together!

The Historic Fredericksburg Foundation receives $5,000 grant from the Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Fund of the Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region.

The Historic Fredericksburg Foundation has been awarded a $5,000 grant from the McDuff Green, Jr. Fund of the Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region.

HFFI will use this very generous gift to help fund the publication of our new, revised edition of the Guide to Fredericksburg History (coming in 2013!). This latest version of the Guide, which has circulated in various forms since the early 20th century, was compiled by the volunteer members of HFFI’s Publications Committee. It includes an Introduction by the National Park Service, narratives on 40 significant area properties, over 100 photographs, a Fredericksburg timeline, and a 12 x 18-inch pull out map.

HFFI’s Board of Directors and staff would like to thank the advisors of the Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Fund and the Community Foundation for supporting this important project.


Our current newsletter is full of information about what is going on in Fredericksburg's history community.
