Fredericksburg: The Pioneer Museum

Heinrich Kammlah built a house, smokehouse and barn in 1849. The Kammlah family gradually expanded the house into an 11-room residence and general store. The restored homestead stands at the heart of the Pioneer Museum. The four-acre historical village also includes the 1876 Fassel-Roeder House, 1880s Walton-Smith log cabin, 1904 Weber Sunday House and fire department museum. Periodic events demonstrate pioneer skills. The price of admission includes the nearby historic Vereins Kirche in the center of Marketplatz.
