Comments: Fredericksburg was the site of the first IVV sanctioned walk, held in June, 1976. The original AVA Pilgrimage Walk (10 km) was sanctioned here in 1980 and started at the Sunday House Motel, as it was known then. It was the predecessor of the popular nationwide year round and seasonal events, begun in 1986. The walk covers the historic downtown area and extends from the Stadt Friedhof, or City Cemetery, located at the east end of town to St. Mary's Cemetery on the west end.
