The will of Captain C Wistar Wallace, who died May 20, 1907, left $15,000 to the City of Fredericksburg for the purpose of establishing a public library (See November 1985 Times Magazine.) The will stipulated how the money was to be used and provided for certain conditions to be met.
"FIRST IN THE STATE and fourth in the nation: Those are high honors, and now our own Central Rappahannock Regional Library deserves a metaphoric bouquet for earning them."
