Fort Germanna Visitor Center

The Brawdus Martin Germanna Visitor Center, Library and Memorial Garden constitute one of the jewels of Germanna.

We invite you to come visit us and enjoy the beautiful scenery and unique architecture found in this area of Virginia so rich in history. This land speaks of a great triumph of the human spirit and the rich legacy of colonial Virginia. The grounds of the center are located close to the site of the original Germanna Fort which Governor Alexander Spotswood caused to be built near the Rapidan River to house the first German immigrants that came to Virginia in 1714. The library at the Visitor Center is the home of some hard-to-find texts and some interesting genealogical material.
