The history of Northern Virginia's Fairfax County has been told many times but never through the lens of postcards documenting a county's transition and mirroring the changing face of American life. Readers can view Fairfax County's historic townscapes in communities like Herndon and the city of Fairfax. Explore the county's extensive military history through sites from the Civil War and images of daily life at Camp Humphreys and Fort Belvoir. Enjoy the diversity of places of worship, as well as various spots tourists and county residents have enjoyed during the last 300 years. Each postcard in the collection tells a story. Collectively they offer a unique view into the history of the county.
