Fairfax County Historical Roadside Markers

Fairfax County's Historical Marker program began in January 1998 when the Fairfax County 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. 

Visit the Fairfax County History Commission's Historical Marker Program webpage for more information on marker guidelines, procedures for nominating a Historical Highway Marker, and historical marker application form.
