I love going to the Freeman House. There is a lot of good information, including books, about Vienna and Virginia. Excellent array of gifts that are perfect for visitors or locals. It is one of my “go to” places!

This extraordinary little shop is full of surprises, the least of which is a basement full of used books! It’s part museum, gift shop and used bookstore all on wonderful Church Street. Have a stroll and visit pieces of the past.
