Evidence of Construction Date:

The date of 1923 was taken from V-CRIS. It's specific year seems to indicate it being based off a source. However, Sanborn Fire Insurance maps for Fredericksburg show no building at this location in 1927 and the digitized Tax maps at the Clerk's Office for Block 25 show the building's construction by 1930. Therefore, a year was chosen closest to the VCRIS date while within the possible range of dates it could have been constructed in.
