Fredericksburg Center For Creative Arts

Located on the Rappahannock River as one of Fredericksburg’s prominent features, the FCAA now hosts a number of galleries but has a rich historic past. Built in 1785, this historic site was home to a silversmith and later a middle class family. Intended to be torn down in the 1980s for a parking lot, the FCAA was saved by the citizens and merchants of Fredericksburg. The FCAA is the oldest contemporary art gallery that is still operating downtown.

Fun Fact: The double doors on the west elevation of the building were originally the main entrance to the house because they faced the street leading to the river port.
