    The William-Rausch house

    by Djinn76 Updated Dec 8, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    William Rausch and his wife bought this property in 1894. They lived in an existing house until 1906, when they built this home. A stonemason and carpenter, Rausch probably did much of the construction himself. The home remained in the Rausch family until 1943.

    Garden of peace

    by Djinn76 Written Dec 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Close to the museum, you can walk through what is called the Garden of Peace, quite a weird name for what is indeed a tribute to the people who fought in the Pacific during WW2!
    Indeed on the limestone wall enclosing this small garden you can see hundreds of plaques either celebrating a specific soldier or the whole crew of a battleship. If you wish, you can sponsor a 5”*7” plaques with 350$ or a bigger 20”*20” one for 2500$. You could think this money would be used to help some charity fund (to war victims for example), but it is not the case, it is simply used to further develop the nearby museum!!

    The Main street

    by Djinn76 Updated Dec 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the first thing you would see arriving in Fredericksburg, a long street full of artwork shops. You can try to park there but if it is a busy day you may be out of luck, in that case, the parallel streets are also providing much more parking space. This street is already quite nice but let say this is the touristy part of the town, make sure this is not the only thing you see.

    At long last I have advanced from the admiring sidelines for quilters and have become one. Presently working on several quilts myself...going to some of the quilting stores in Fredericksburg was a huge delight!

    Do try to visit the Tea Rose Quilts & Gifts. Absolutely amazing....and inspiring!

    Market Square (Marktplatz) has long been a focal point of Fredericksburg activities. Here you see the picnic area where they set up many of the community activities and festivals.

    The tour bus offers plenty of time to walk around this area and enjoy the view of the long driveway to the house.

    The new St Mary's church

    by Djinn76 Updated Dec 22, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Gothic Revival church has been built in 1905-1906 when the older church appear to be too small for the growing Christian community.
