There is! In the rear of the building at 2217 Princess Anne Street there is plenty of parking, as well as the lot at the corner of Princess Anne and Hunter Streets (east side, opposite Mason-Dixon and Carl’s)
Why are you celebrating the mid-20th century? Is that really “history”?
We think the mid-20th century was an important time in our country as well as in Fredericksburg. Change was happening a mile a minute. Downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods have some wonderful stories as well as architectural details from this era and we want to share them with everyone. If we value this era now, future generations will know the stories and appreciate their history.
