As you drive into old town Fredericksburg you will pass this house. By the way, one block over and you will pass my house. The main section of the house was built prior to the Civil War. The family who owns it are a bit reclusive but I have been in it once. In addition to being a beautiful and historic house the grandfather of the current owner served with the "Great White Fleet" (Learning moment...President Teddy Roosevelt sent an American fleet around the world, 1907-09 to show the flag). There are pictures of this little adventure on the walls.
