Nomination to the National Register
of Historic Places - Fairlington Historic District

On September 16, 1998, the Fairlington Historic Designation Committee submitted its formal "Nomination to the National Register of Historic Places." This 66 page document is presented in its entirety (minus 5 pages of maps) so that the Fairlington Community can know of the tremendous effort that was put forth by an army of volunteers. The nomination package was ably assembled and submitted to the National Register by Gail H. Baker, a consultant with the Fairlington Historical Designation Committee.

And then in December of 1998 and March of 1999, all of these efforts were rewarded when the Commonwealth of Virginia added Fairlington to the Virginia Landmarks Register (December 2, 1998) and the Federal Government selected Fairlington for the National Register for Historic Places (March 29, 1999).
