The Fairfax County History Commission was established by the County of Fairfax in 1969. The Commission helps identify, document, record, and preserve the county's historic past here in Northern Virginia. The Commission's 20 members are appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
The History Commission meets at 7:30 p.m. in the 1st Floor Conference Room of the City of Fairfax Regional Library (10360 North Street) on the first Wednesday of every month. The 2019 Meeting Schedule can be viewed here. The meeting agenda is available online one week prior to the meeting. Our various committees meet on an as-needed basis. We also sponsor events in local history--such as roadside marker dedications--throughout the year. Visit our Events page to learn more.
