Fairfax County has roots in the founding of America in many different respects. Founding Fathers George Washington and George Mason made their homes here and those are some of the most visited historic sites in the Commonwealth. We are also home to the National Museum of the United States Army and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center – which tell the tales of individuals and institutions that gave all they had to advance America across the centuries through sacrifice and innovation.
These sites, and dozens of others, not only highlight the revolution that defined America’s earliest existence, but also the continuing evolution of America as the destiny of our nation unfolded through a beautifully diverse collection of cultures and beliefs all striving to make our country as good as it possibly could be.
