Communities

In the years since its creation in 1742, Fairfax County has been transformed from farmland to bedroom community to the economic engine of Virginia.  Fairfax County was home to George Washington, the first President, and George Mason, the Father of the Bill of Rights.

The growth of the federal government following World War II spurred Fairfax County’s growth. Today, it is home to more than 1,000,000 residents, making it by far the most populous County in Virginia and in the Washington, DC region.  More Fortune 500 companies make their headquarters in Fairfax County than anywhere else in the region, and the Tysons Corner area has more office space than the downtown areas of most major cities.  Much of the nation’s Internet traffic flows through Fairfax, and it also home to the Central Intelligence Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.
