FXBG is more than just a destination.
Yes, it’s the bricks, mortar and streets, but more so, it’s the people that have held this community together for nearly 300 years.

Our restaurants and coffee shops are where we come to meet and catch up with one another. Our unique shops and retailers are where we come to buy the things that make our houses homes. Our outdoors help you escape and recharge your mind and spirit.
The deep history of our city gives us a new perspective on our lives.

We invite you to connect with us when you are ready, and to become a part of the stories that make us who we are.
