Fairfax County is Turning 275 Years Old!

To celebrate 275 years of history, events have been planned at the Historic Fairfax Courthouse throughout the year. A lecture series, themed “Fairfax County: Yesterday and Today,” is free and open to the public, but registration is required ahead of time. We invite you to join us on Tuesday, May 16 at 7:30 p.m., to learn about the history of your police department and sheriff’s office, and the court system.
