The Turner Farmhouse, built in 1905 by the Turner family, is located in a 52-acre community park at the intersection of Georgetown Pike and Springvale Road in Great Falls, Virginia. The property contains several historic structures. The Mark Turner Dairy Farm is an example of the type of farm that predominated in the Great Falls area during the early years of the 20th century, and the Turners were hailed as model farmers in a 1948 article in the "National Grange Monthly."
The 3,216-square-foot house is significant due to its Queen Anne style architecture and because it exemplifies the cultural, economic, and historic heritage of the Springvale and Forestville/Great Falls communities in Northern Virginia. Many of the original details, formal parlor, hardwood flooring, and fireplaces remain. The farmhouse has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The Resident Curator Evaluation Team for applications to Turner Farm held a public information meeting on May 17, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the Great Falls Grange located at 9818 Georgetown Pike in Great Falls, VA. The meeting provided an opportunity for the applicant to present their proposal to the evaluation team in a public forum. Additional meetings of the evaluation team were held on Monday, May 8, May 22 and July 10 at 9 a.m., in the Herrity Building at 12055 Government Center Pkwy, Fairfax, VA. Members of the public were asked to submit comments in writing to the project manager via Parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov by Friday, June 2, 2017.
