What’s in a Name?
As we were choosing a name for our writing and arts working and teaching space, we wanted it to describe both the location at our address on the banks of the Rappahannock and our city of Fredericksburg. We wanted to honor the river, the town and its people, their interests and enthusiasms, which inspire us as artists.
On many old maps of Fredericksburg, Sophia Street was alternatively called Water Street. Water, river, growth in the arts, roots, sustenance, all images seemed to come together in that name.
