At Christmas time, Jerry and I love to visit Old Down Town Fredericksburg, Virginia, which is near our home. Here we peek in the windows of historic shops. The charm really shines out at night when the tree lined streets are lit up with Christmas lights. These are the streets that Washington and his family members walked. In fact, Georg Washington was born on the other side of the river, at Ferry Farm. His mother and sister lived in Fredericksburg. President James Monroe had his law practice here. Also, President Lincoln visited here to give a speech to soldiers after they had battled on the streets of Fredericksburg during the Civil War. At that time, Clara Barton had been nursing troupes in this city.
We love to look into the decorated store windows of Fredericksburg.
I love the mouse scenes put on every year in this set of windows.
