Historical and Biographical Information

Mary Dolores Waters, Mrs. James A. Gura, Mrs. L. Scott Thomason, and Mrs. John Prokopis incorporated the Fairfax Heritage Society on August 4, 1966. The nonprofit group strived to encourage research, historical studies, protection and the restoration of Fairfax County historical landmarks. The group also promoted social and civic activities. The group was extremely influential in supporting the preservation of Sully Plantation. In 1970, the Society unsuccessfully campaigned for a Fairfax County Museum of History to be built in the Fairfax County Courthouse. The Society quietly faded into oblivion that same year.
