Normandy Village

The Normandy Village district is not a true historic district like downtown Fredericksburg but it is a community of buildings with similar architectural features and a common period of construction.  The buildings are modestly decorated modern homes, that mainly represent variations of the Ranch style, and a stretch of commercial buildings along Jefferson Davis Highway.  This district is an example of post-World War II suburbanization with the majority of the buildings being built between 1950 and 1960.  The development of the Normandy Village community was also in response to alterations of US highway 1 which allowed suburban residents access to jobs in Richmond and Washington, D.C.
