The Lewis Store

The Lewis Store, on the corner of Lewis and Caroline Sts., was constructed in 1749 and is considered one of the oldest surviving retail buildings in America. It was renovated in 2002 by the Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, for use as their office and gift shop. It’s not really set up as a historic attraction, but they are open during the week (M-F, 9-3 & 4-5) and visitors are welcome to stop by and have a look around.

You can support the efforts of the HFFI by donating money for a commemorative brick in the sidewalk around the store:
