A Great Place to Experience History

Take a step back in time and discover the Fairfax Station Museum and the role it played in the history of Northern Virginia.

A key element in the development of the regional economy from its completion on the Orange & Alexandria Railroad in 1854, it played a critical role in the American Civil War and was the center of local community life for almost a century until modern highways and rail transportation made local train depots a thing of the past.  The Station was an important supply and medical evacuation site during the Civil War where Clara Barton, later the founder of the American Red Cross, assisted in relief and evacuation efforts in 1862 during the Second Battle of Bull Run.

Museum displays, activities and events help preserve local history and promote railroading.  Come explore Civil War history, railroading and the fascinating story of our local community.
