Second Annual Event

November 7th, 2015: Fairfax County’s 11th Annual History Conference

Fairfax County's Founding Fathers

We were delighted to be a sponsor for this year's Fairfax County History Conference. Jenee Lindner, president of the FHFxCH give a talk on Who Was the Fairfax Family? Good question...after all we are in Fairfax, Virginia! The Fairfax family were life long friends of George Washington. And speaking of GW (Dean Malissa), he gave a wonderful presentation. Great conference with great company!
