City Directory, 1892
Central Rappahannock Regional Library (CRRL), 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, Virginia, has a xeroxed copy of a printed "Fredericksburg Directory, 1892." Although no further information is available, it is the earliest surviving directory with street numbers. African-American residents were noted in the original as "col." However, for consistency this index uses the "*" as did the 1888 Directory. In addition, the street names have been changed from the original document, to reflect current names. In 1891, the City Council had changed to a system of lettered and numbered streets. Lettered streets were north-south beginning at the Rappahannock River. Numbered streets were East-West streets beginning at the southern end of Town. A conversion table is available.
The electronic version was created by the Center for Historic Preservation at The University of Mary Washington by scanning a copy of the text and then modifying the format to fit a table. Comments, or corrections to this index should be sent to Gary Stanton at The University of Mary Washington. firstname.lastname@example.org
