209 Fauquier Street The Colonial brick house at 209 Fauquier Street was moved to this lot in 1930. Built in 1837 on the northeast corner of Fauquier and Princess Anne streets by Ephraim Francis, a carpenter. It was mistakenly known as the Charles Washington house. Washington, however, had moved to Charles Town, West Virginia decades before the structure was built. When it was announced that Route 1 would pass through Fredericksburg using Princess Anne Street and Lafayette Boulevard, L. G. Roach bought the property and had the the dwelling moved.

Many thanks to The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region and the David Morgan Fund for a grant we received today that is dedicated to General Operating Support. MHAfred depends on general support donations to keep the doors open and programs running. Imagine trying to keep a business running without staying on top of your bookkeeping, and all the other administrative tasks. Thanks again, The David Morgan Fund.
We are so thankful for this generous grant from The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region from the Anne Felder Fund. Here are some of the pictures of indoor and outdoor gardening! The focus of our H.A.N.D.S. Projects are to teach nutrition, independence, communication, and to build confidence, advocacy and inclusion. Thank you all for helping us as we strengthen our community! It truly takes a village and our village is so strong! If you, or someone you know, would benefit from life-skills programs, please reach out to [email protected]

We’re thrilled to see the final product of SAWs-Virginia's outstanding work in constructing and installing a ramp to assist a community member in need! The Hilldrup Move-Up Fund financially sponsored the ramp, and the talented volunteer team of SAWs Virginia brought the design of the ramp to life. We’re honored to partner with such an impactful organization, along with our friends The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region, to give a stronger sense of independence and mobility to our neighbors in the local area.
Daily Trail Mail :) Have you experienced the brand new Duff Green Trail at Motts Run? If you have, please share your comments here to give others your reason on why it's a must visit trail! We would like to once again recognize and highlight that this project was funded through a grant via The Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Fund at The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region! Thank you for seeing what this new trail will offer our growing natural surface and outdoor recreational community! Huge shout out to all of our amazing VOLUNTEERS that have added their muscle on top of the grant funding to make it all come together. Thank-you to the entire The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region staff for what you do and an extra loud shout out to Melanie for spending some time on the trail with us to capture this well put together video!
We are so thankful for our partnership with The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region and for the new partnership we have with Servants At Work! We are thrilled our Hilldrup Move-Up Fund can support this important work and impact people's lives for years to come!
Our Foundation Friday shoutout this week is a little different. SAWs Virginia recently applied for a grant through The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region. SAWs mission and grant request aligned perfectly with The Hilldrup Move-Up Fund and a partnership was formed. Great things are happening with SAWs-Virginia .

Good morning Trail Friends! We are pleased to announce some very exciting news!! The brand-new Duff Green Trail at Motts Run Reservoir Recreation Area is now OPEN! This exciting project was made possible through a grant awarded to FredTrails from the Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Fund of The Community Foundation! There are a few small things yet to accomplish, so this soft opening will be followed up with a grand opening through The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region! What to expect!?! This 1.2-mile trail has many twists and turns, many rollers, and has some surprising elevation gain to it. This machine built (and volunteer built) single track trail will have you breathing heavy while working your upper body as you navigate through the turns and while getting some air off the rollers. As part of the plan, we wanted to offer a different vibe for this trail to add to the assortment of trail types that we have throughout our local trails! More details on this new trail will be shared with the grand opening! For now, go experience the Duff Green Trail, and let us know what you think! If you have already experienced it, please share your thoughts here with the community!
