Fairfax County History Commission Historical Roadside Markers



Fairfax County History Commission Historical Roadside MarkersFairfax County's Historical Marker Program began in January 1998 when the History Commission approved a design and agreed to fund a distinctive marker for Fairfax County. While this marker was generally modeled after Virginia's roadside markers, by state code it had to have a distinctive appearance. With colors derived from George Washington's Fairfax Militia uniform, these buff and blue roadside markers are emblazoned with the Fairfax County seal. Many of the requests for historical markers are initiated by the public or by proffers from developers. These sources have provided more than half of the funds supporting the program to date. If you are interested in proposing a historical marker for Fairfax County, contact Jack Hiller, chair of the Fairfax County History Commission marker committee for additional information. Most historical markers in Fairfax County are listed in the Historical Marker Database, an independent website unaffilated with Fairfax County.
