In the 18th century, two bold and visionary men dared to give shape and reason to revolution. From their Fairfax County homes at Mount Vernon and Gunston Hall, George Washington and George Mason led the patriots in the cause of freedom. In the 21st century, Fairfax County draws visitors from around the world — whether they have an interest in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, national monuments or even such modern pursuits as shopping and outdoor recreation.
