The Chimney’s, named for its two stone chimneys at each end, is regarded as one of the finest examples of Georgian Architecture in the city of Fredericksburg. The two-story house is framed with heavy timber with mortise and tenon joints secured with hardwood pegs. Spaces between wall studs are nogged with the brick in the interior and exterior walls (on display in our back, right dining room). In the mid- to late 18th century, Fredericksburg was a large port city in the colonies and The Chimneys’ hipped roof framing utilizes techniques common in the construction of ships’ hulls at the time. It’s decorative woodwork in the molding, millwork and paneling is also particularly significant. The Chimneys was officially added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
