Tucked into the rolling landscape of Virginia's picturesque Piedmont, Fredericksburg lies almost exactly halfway between Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Virginia. Its proximity to two of the nation's most dynamic cities makes it the envy of many American cities of its size. With dozens of major employers and a healthy student scene thanks to nearby Mary Washington University, Fredericksburg leaves a lasting impression on residents and visitors alike.
Fredericksburg doesn't take its self-designated status as "America's Most Historic City" lightly. In fact, the city is home to such revered historical attractions as George Washington's Ferry Farm, the Fredericksburg National Cemetery, and the sprawling Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Parks. In the center of the "old town," the 40-acre Fredericksburg Historic District has played host to historical events like the 18th-century penning of Thomas Jefferson's Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom and the 1958 development of the electric guitar's "power chord."
