Fredericksburg, Virginia: Small Town Charm And City Convenience
Located in the northeastern portion of Virginia, Fredericksburg is known as “America’s Most Historic City.” It was originally founded in 1728 and incorporated in 1781, and is still home to many 18th century buildings.
During the colonial area, Fredericksburg served as one of Virginia’s main ports, and was later a site of several battles during the Revolutionary War. Famous residents have included several members of George Washington’s family, U.S. president James Monroe and multiple Revolutionary War generals. In fact, Thomas Jefferson wrote the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom in Fredericksburg.
Today, Fredericksburg is sought after for its proximity to both Richmond, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., and is home to the University of Mary Washington. Both residents and tourists enjoy a range of activities, such as browsing local farmers’ markets, visiting one of the many local breweries or hiking through the nearby Shenandoah State Park.
