History

In early 2013, Washington Heritage Museums, a 501c3, assumed ownership and responsibility for the Fredericksburg properties.  We are vigorously committed to a new era of health and relevance for these architectural and cultural treasures.  Their historical importance is not merely local, but national.

 

We are an active organization of several hundred members from not only Virginia, but across the nation. Besides having regular educational programs and social events, we maintain and staff the four historic house museums in downtown Fredericksburg: the Mary Washington House, Rising Sun Tavern, Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop and St. James' House. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities and welcome all members to help us share these important sites with the public.
