“I would like to take this opportunity to both thank AND compliment everyone at HFFI for their hard work on the Historic Pub Tour this past weekend. It is near impossible for us to believe this was the first such outing as it was so perfectly arranged and executed! We thought all the speakers were knowledgeable, articulate and extremely interesting. Again, to ALL of the HFFI associates that planned and participated—we’d like to extend our thanks and appreciation for a job well done!” -HFFI Member

Follow the Fire – SOLD OUT!
October 19, 2018
Come join us for a spirited evening tour on Friday, October 19. We will be following the path of destruction that the fire of October 19, 1807 blazed through what is now the historic district of Fredericksburg.
There will be a number of noteworthy buildings featured that were affected, including our own Lewis Store and the Old Stone Warehouse on Sophia St. There will be tour guides providing information along the way about significant buildings that were affected, stages of the fire, and effects it had on Fredericksburg.
Enjoy refreshments* at local establishments that experienced fires during the 1800s. The tour will begin at La Petite Auberge, and will conclude at Capital Ale House Fredericksburg, both of which were damaged in fires during the 1800s.
You will receive a FREE gift for coming to the tour. We will also have a raffle!
The tour begins from La Petite Auberge at your scheduled time (5:15pm or 5:45pm). The tour will last approximately 2.5 hours. Please wear comfortable shoes.
Tickets are $15 for HFFI members and $20 for non-members. HFFI membership will be validated after order is received. Reserve your spot here, by emailing [email protected], OR by stopping by the Lewis Store.
