Welcome to The Richard Johnston Inn, in Historic Fredericksburg, Virginia

One of the original signers of The Declaration of Independence, architect John Taylow, constructed this distinct, upscale 18th century Inn in 1770. In the 1800’s, the building was home to the mayor of Fredericksburg, and the Inn's namesake, Richard Johnston. The award winning Inn offers seven beautifully appointed guest rooms, 2 suites and caters to small, intimate weddings and other special events in our courtyard or parlors.
