Historical and Biographical Information

In 2006, the Fairfax County 2007 Community Citizen Planning Committee proposed writing a book about the county’s history in commemoration of the 400th anniversary founding of Jamestown. The plans called for a legacy book that featured articles, essays and vignettes highlighting the history of Fairfax County from 1607 to 2007. The committee solicited from the public original non-published entries of less than 2,500 words highlighting events, localities, or any subject of historical significance that occurred in Fairfax County. Entries had to be submitted by September 1, 2006. The committee established a Legacy Book Subcommittee and had local historians, education professionals, and members of the Fairfax County Public Library review and evaluate the entries. In 2007, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors financially supported the publishing of the completed book project entitled Fairfax County Stories 1607-2007.
