HFFI Events

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

Retro Retail Therapy:  Shopping Downtown in the 1950s:  A Walking Tour

What was it like to go shopping in Fredericksburg in the 1950s? Before the strip malls and shopping centers, all of the stores were downtown. Take a walk with us as we show you what stores were where, including a tour of the African American shopping district.

Retro Retail Therapy Walking Tour will be on Saturday, April 13 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. We will meet at the Visitor Center, 706 Caroline Street.

Reservations can be made online by clicking here or by calling or visiting the HFFI Office at the Lewis Store (Address: 1200 Caroline Street, Phone 540-371-4504). The tour is $5 for HFFI members and $7 for non-HFFI members.

A big thanks to Fredericksburg VA Main Street Inc. for providing gift cards to be raffled off at this event.
