City Visitor Center gets facelift

Update: The Visitor Center may not reopen Tuesday, due to ongoing work. As soon as we have a better idea when it will reopen, we’ll update this post. 


The Visitor Center in downtown Fredericksburg got a facelift last week and was closed during the work.

It will reopen tomorrow.

The upgraded digs include new paint and carpet, and new counters.

Restroom renovations in the back of the building uncovered some issues on the first floor that required fixing, said Julie Perry, manager of the Visitor Center.

The new carpet and paint evolved out of those issues.

“It’s been many years since the interior of the center was addressed,” Perry said.

The Visitor Center was under construction last week while it got a facelift.
