Testimonial by The Cameleer:
" As the owner of The Cameleer, a downtown Culpeper business since 1992, I give a lot of credit to
Culpeper Renaissance for the revitalization of our area, Since 1988, it has enabled private-public partnerships and engineered a large core of volunteers to build an exceedingly attractive downtown destination for locals and tourists. I look forward to seeing what they can do in the next 30 years."

Testimonial by Pepperberries:
As a merchant in historic Downtown Culpeper, we are so pleased we chose Culpeper to establish our business. Every goal we set has been surpassed. As I look back on my research, I seriously considered the Old Town Fredericksburg area, until we came to Culpeper and met with Culpeper Renaissance Inc. Without your help, I would never have found my excellent location on the corner of Main and Davis Street. Your continued follow up is very much appreciated and comforting for me. My sincere appreciation to Culpeper Renaissance Inc. for providing me with the tools to be a success business in this fabulous town.
