Where the Past Is Present and the Arts Are Alive

The People’s Street: Princess Anne

Checkout the Fredericksburg Area Museum’s latest exhibition, the People’s Street: Princess Anne on display now in historic Council Chamber. ¬†Built 1820, the building at 800 Princess Anne Street served continuously as a bank until 2014. In those 194 years, just three different financial institutions occupied building. It was perhaps the longest continuous use of any building as a bank in Virginia. The final owners, PNC Bank, preserved and eventually donated an unmatched collection of artifacts and records that reflect the history of the building and the evolution of banking in Fredericksburg over more than 150 years. This exhibition was generously sponsored by PNC Bank and is built around those artifacts.

 

Thank you PNC Bank for your support!
