Fredericksburg was established in the 1720s. Visit Kenmore, a stately colonial-era mansion and garden that’s been restored to a high standard, and enjoy a wide variety of activities throughout the year. Nearby is Mary Washington House, where the mother of George Washington resided during her later years.
Naturally, George Washington’s early life is chronicled at Ferry Farm, which is where he spent most of his childhood. The 69-acre site is an example of the colonial style, and Fourth of July celebrations always get started with a bang here. If you’d like to take a look at colonial medicine, the Hugh Mercer Apothecary is a tiny house that’s packed with intriguing relics from the Scottish doctor who resided there.
Wherever you live in Fredericksburg, Va., you need an outdoor entertainment area that matches your style. The area is filled with history, and patios, screen rooms, and decking from PWHI withstand the test of time so you can make your mark on the great outdoors.
