Location & History of the Pioneer Complex
Located on 3.5 acres on Main Street in downtown Fredericksburg, the Pioneer Complex preserves early Fredericksburg history by showcasing hundreds of preserved artifacts in 10 buildings. Four of these buildings still stand where they were originally erected. Two blocks away in the Marktplatz, a replica of the Vereins Kirche (“Society Church”) allows visitors to learn about the first public building constructed by pioneers in Fredericksburg. The original building, built in 1847, served as a church, school, and community center.
