Continuing with a getting-to-know-one-another theme, my Project 52 group is sharing pictures of our towns. I love this virtual traveling! And, I am so pleased to have joined a group of photographers for a blog circle using these same Project 52 themes, so after enjoying a little tour of Fredericksburg, you can click on the links to visit several other towns. Next up is Jennifer at Designed Chaos in Colorado. Enjoy your trip around our circle!
Warning: I had a hard time limiting the number of photos for this week’s theme. I managed to only put 9 in this post, but there are 19 more in my new Fredericksburg gallery, including some shots from two other downtown photo walks last summer.
Perhaps the most important part of Fredericksburg is the Rappahannock River flowing through it. I photographed it this week, all icy cold.
I took the second one with the following photo from last summer in mind, though I didn’t feel like standing there in the cold waiting for a train. 😉
Here are a few landmarks in Fredericksburg. Goolrick’s is one of the oldest pharmacies in the country.
Hyperion Espresso is a popular meeting place.
Mercer Apothecary is one of the many historic sites in this very historic city.
The Old Stone Warehouse sits right on the river and houses many interesting artifacts. See the oval plaque on the door? It says 1813 because that’s when it was built. Many of the buildings in Fredericksburg have these plaques.
I enjoy walking the streets of my old town . . .
. . . thinking about how much history these old buildings have seen.
Thank you for looking. Please leave a comment so I know you were here.
