This is the John Paul Jones House on Caroline Street in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The photograph was made between 1910 and 1915, when the building was occupied by Gately’s Groceries. The old photograph is from the collection of the Library of Congress. This was the only home in America of John Paul Jones, an American Revolutionary War hero and father of the United States Navy. His most famous words were “I have not yet begun to fight!” Today, the John Paul Jones home serves as a “Seafarers Coffee House.” Fredericksblogger has a photograph of the way it is today.
