Working to preserve, protect, and revitalize the distinctive historic environment and cultural resources of the Fredericksburg area.
The Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, Inc. (HFFI) is a member- and volunteer-supported 501c(3) nonprofit organization. Founded in 1955 by a group of local citizens alarmed by the destruction of several architectural and historical landmarks in the city, today, HFFI remains steadfastly committed to the same guiding principles embraced by its founders over half a century ago: to protect the Fredericksburg area’s rich cultural heritage; to promote awareness of, and interest in, local preservation issues; and to inform future generations of the benefits of preservation to our quality of life.
An amazing, grassroots, volunteer-supported organization…
For the Historic Fredericksburg Foundation’s leadership and staff, doing is believing. Our hands-on, get-it-done approach is supported by more than 400 private and corporate members. With our dedicated team of volunteers, we are expanding the role of preservation beyond the restoration of a few grand buildings. We are bringing a productive new life to the diverse historic resources. We are promoting a broader understanding and appreciation of this very special region and its vital contributions to American history. We are dedicated to our community’s continuing quality of life and economic vitality.
