Love the “Silversmith House” on February 14, 2022

Love the Silversmith House

The Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts (FCCA) will conduct a “Love the Silversmith House” fund raiser from Monday, February 14 to February 28.

Please help us to fund the restoration of our dormer windows at the “Silversmith House” with a goal of $3,000.

Donations can be made online or made in person at the Silversmith House, 813 Sophia Street or by phone at 540-373-5646 during gallery hours.

Walk-in donations will be gladly accepted as cash, check or charge, in addition to mailed donations, or pledges with other means of payment. Open: Mon. noon - 4 pm; Thurs. – Fri. noon - 4 pm; Sat. 11 am - 4 pm; Sun. 1 – 4 pm. Closed: Tues. and Wed.

The “Silversmith House” c. 1785, has withstood the past 237 years, and we hope to preserve it for future generations as the place “where art and history meet”.

Please open your heart and your purse for FCCA on February 14th. Funds from this year will benefit the restoration of the dormer windows which have suffered the ravages of time and weather.

All donations are tax deductible. Donations of materials and labor by certified technicians are always welcome as gifts-in-kind.
