Fairfax Station is a historic area with many pre-revolutionary settlements. The Fairfax Station Railroad was a very busy railroad community and eventually the hub of county commerce, communication, transportation, as well as the county social center. In 1973, The Southern Railway System closed this station which was the last operating railway depot in Fairfax County. In 1978, The Friends of Fairfax Station along with a donation from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors reconstructed the station to form the present day museum. The museum features exhibits areas, a gift shop, and a private room that can be rented for private events and can hold up to fifty people. Presently, the museum depends upon membership dues, admission fees, special events, and gift shop sales to maintain and run the museum. Jump on board!!
