Fairfax County is working to better capture, communicate and preserve the history of African Americans in the county. As part of this effort, 70 properties with historical, cultural, architectural or archaeological significance were surveyed through a Virginia Department of Historic Resources’ (VDHR) program. The results are now available in a draft report. 



Residents are encouraged to review the draft survey report, submit comments online by March 24.
