Welcome to WHCA
And our new website
Everyone is invited to attend the dedication of a new historical marker recalling “The Pines” on Saturday, October 15, 2016, at 1 PM.
This marker honors the legacy of a close-knit African-American community whose land was acquired by the County through eminent domain to provide property for a school which was never built. The land is now used by Fairfax County for gardens and athletic fields. Fairfax County reports that the dedication ceremony is intended to “bring together community, officials and members of families who once called ‘The Pines’ home. The program features music and remembrance followed by light refreshments provided by the Woodburn Homes Civic Association in honor of their neighbors from ‘The Pines’.”
We invite everyone to join in honoring our neighbors!
For more information, visit us online at Fairfax County Park Authority or call the Public Information Office at 703-324-8662.
