Nominations - Inventory of Historic Sites

Anyone may nominate a property for listing in the Inventory. The History Commission requires that the owner be notified of the nomination. The applicant must submit either an Individual Property Nomination Form or a District Nomination Form. Staff reviews the application for completion and submits it to the History Commission Inventory Committee for evaluation. If accepted, the Inventory Committee will bring the nomination to the History Commission for a vote at an upcoming meeting. A file for each resource on the Inventory is kept at the Fairfax County Department of Planning and Development. 

Applicants researching the history of buildings in Fairfax County, Virginia should review the Research Guidelines. These preliminary steps assist in preparing an Individual Property Nomination form. Not all suggestions apply to every site.
