Set in the heart of historic Fredericksburg, the Richard Johnston Inn provides travelers with relaxing accommodations minutes from local battlefields, the city's Visitors Center, historic landmarks, shopping, and dining! The inn is also conveniently located three blocks from the train station. If you drive, you can park for free in its off-street parking area.
When you stay at the Richard Johnston Inn, it's like stepping back in time! This award-winning inn was built in 1770 by John Taylow, one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence. In the 1880s, it was the residence of the city's mayor, Richard Johnston. The home even weathered the American Civil War, which destroyed most of Downtown Fredericksburg!
