HFFI’s Year in Review

2020 brought challenges none of us at Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, Inc. could ever have expected. The Lewis Store has been closed to the public for much of the year, but our membership continues to grow, our audience on social media continues to engage, volunteers continue to make a deep impact on our organization, and we have so much to be grateful for.

  • The 2020 event calendar began with a successful Prohibition at the Distillery program, but due to the pandemic, other events had to be postponed or canceled. HFFI stayed connected by hosting #TriviaTuesday events in the spring/summer of 2020 and looks forward to rescheduled tours and other events in 2021.

  • The HFFI Marker Map program was officially launched and our Marker Committee continues its diligent research work for property owners throughout the city.

  • Plaster work began in portions of the Lewis Store interior, and we look forward to welcoming our members and visitors back to see the progress.

  • The Publications Committee continued its work through regular articles in The Front Porch.

  • The organization provided regular review and comment on proposed preservation projects in the city.

  • The 50th Annual Candlelight Tour was modified into an app-based tour, thanks to the hard work of an amazing team of volunteers. Property owners and community members throughout the city showed overwhelming, enthusiastic support for this new tour format.

  • HFFI volunteers continued to engage with our community through Facebook posts and launched a new Instagram account in 2020.

We look forward to 2021. If you are able, please consider making an end-of-year contribution to HFFI. Your donation will help us continue our mission in so many ways.

Gretchen Goodell Pendleton, Director of Operations, HFFI
