The William-Rausch house
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.Related to:
Garden of peace
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
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.Related to:
