HFFI Markers Distinguish Historic Places

HFFI‘s distinctive bronze markers commemorate our community’s architectural heritage.

The Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, Inc. launched its Marker Program in 1989 and today, our distinctive, bronze markers can be found on more than 250 historic structures throughout the city. By identifying buildings of historic and architectural significance HFFI strives to foster broader public awareness and appreciation for Fredericksburg’s past and encourage efforts to preserve the built heritage that makes our community so unique.
