Mrs. Frances Robinson Buckley Pratt

Mrs. Frances Robinson Buckley Pratt lived in the Fredericksburg area for most of a century. She has witnessed many changes in the area including the beginning of Fort A. P. Hill and the Great Flood. She has an interesting story to tell and a lot of geographic information about how the town began and what grew where. She met a few celebrities along the way too, including the famous artist Salvador Dali and his wife. Her memory is very good and from it we get a vivid picture of Fredericksburg through the years.
