New Interpretive Signs to be Dedicated at Centreville Day


Three interpretive signs will be dedicated during the approaching Centreville Day celebration slated for Saturday, October 19, 2013 at Historic Centreville Park.   Although festivities run throughout the day, the signs will be unveiled in a brief ceremony at 2 p.m.  The signs were funded through a proffer agreement with the landowner-developer.

The signs, located near the intersection of Braddock and Mount Gilead Roads, depict Newgate Tavern and its compelling history. Newgate was a colonial inn built circa 1768 where many travelers, including George Washington, stopped on their journeys.  It formed the nucleus of the crossroad village of Newgate that would later be chartered as Centreville.  One sign discusses the general history of the tavern, another more specifically looks at the history of convict and enslaved labor that is associated with the tavern and the third examines the archeological findings of a Phase III dig conducted prior to the commercial development of the property. 

The signs are located at 13923 Braddock Road in Centreville, Va. For more information about Centreville Day, visit online at www.CentrevilleVA.org. Public parking is located at 5860 Trinity Parkway.  Free shuttles are available to take visitors to the historic district.
