Krieger-Geyer House (Staudt Sunday House)

-A A +A
Staudt Sunday House
c. 1855; later additions. 512 W. Creek St.

The Krieger-Geyer house is sometimes referred to as the Staudt Sunday House after a later owner of the house. While still in Germany, Adam Krieger and George Geyer both purchased 25 × 200–foot lots adjacent to each other, but George Geyer never came to Fredericksburg and Krieger must have purchased his lot. The oldest section of the house on the west end of the property is of fachwerk construction with an exterior oversized chimney stack. Originally this room had a packed dirt floor that has been covered by wooden flooring. The narrow exterior stairway that led to the sleeping loft is a modern replacement. The rubble-limestone room and a rear addition were added later at an unknown date, as are the jigsawed and drilled wooden decorative panels set between the columns of the front porch. The house has been converted into a bed-and-breakfast as have many of the other Sunday Houses in Fredericksburg, although some have been made into permanent dwellings with additions.
