Pape-Dangers House

-A A +A
c. 1846 Pape Cabin; c. 1851 Dangers House. 213 W. Creek St.

The two houses on this lot are considered to be among the oldest in Fredericksburg. The simple one-room log house set well back from the street was constructed by Friedrich Pape, one of the original settlers of 1846. The larger three-bay L-plan limestone house placed on the front property line was constructed by Burchard Dangers, the second Protestant minister to arrive in the new town.
