Fredericksburg in Town
The Metzger family built the Metzger Sunday House in 1898. Farmers by occupation, the Metzger family built this little home in town to use on the weekends for shopping and attending church and has been kept in the family for over a century. Located just one block from Main Street in the Historic District, guests will delight in seeing the Metzger Sunday House along with two other original Sunday Houses all lined up in a row.
Typical of the old Sunday Houses, a small covered porch with swing and comfy chair greets you upon arrival. The main room serves double duty as a bedroom and sitting area. A queen-size bed is the focal point of the room. This magnificent bed has been handed down in the family and is topped with a colorful comforter and fluffy pillows. The antique velvet sofa and chair is comfortably arranged around the television.
The kitchen is fully equipped for your use and delightfully appointed with rich, bright colors. A table for four is in the center of this spacious kitchen. The bath has a tub and shower.
Located only a block from Main Street, this special home is easy walking to shopping and churches. In addition, photographers for major publications, such as Texas Highways, frequently use this picturesque home for magazine and newspaper articles and there is even a postcard that can be found locally of it. Furthermore, this home participated in the 150th Fredericksburg Anniversary Tour.
