The history of this 18th Century gem begins in 1789 when this Chew Family built this as their single- family home. Then it was sold to the Presbyterian church where they built a very large addition to the back of the house in 1893, and thus the home was transformed into the Fredericksburg College that could hold 250 students at one time. In 1916 the church sold the college which separated its lot from next door at 1200 Prince Edward St. that was primarily used to house the widows and orphans of the church. Eventually, the building was sold to Mr. Letcher Stoner, who converted the building into a renowned corner store. Over time the store turned into a museum that was home to 13,000 pieces of authentic Americana.
