Resident Curator Program

 

Be a preservation hero. Help Fairfax County preserve our tangible past by partnering with us to care for our historic resources. Slices of Fairfax County history are slipping away as some little-used, publicly-owned historic properties fall victim to the elements and disuse. The Resident Curator Program (RCP) is designed to preserve historic properties by offering long-term leases to qualified tenants who agree to rehabilitate and maintain these historic resources. A curator can be a private citizen, a non-profit entity, or a for-profit entity.
