Pleasures’ Past

November 2016 – December 2018


Often entertainment and recreational accounts are overlooked and underappreciated because of the influence that our region had during times of war. Our collection includes many objects that represent the life and leisure of Fredericksburgers. This exhibit takes a peek at some of the few and only remaining objects from Southworth’s Pleasure Island (Scott’s Island), Fredericksburg sports memorabilia, and objects related to the area’s music and theatre industry.
