Fairfax County History Commission Historical Roadside Markers

Fairfax County History Commission Historic 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. The historical markers may be viewed on the Fairfax County Historic Preservation and Heritage Resources website at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpz/historic/fxhistcom-markers/.
