Hybla Valley sits on what was once the Mason family’s Hollin Hall plantation. In the 19th century, Thomson Dairy owned the property. In the early 20th century, owner Merle Thorpe converted the various dairy farms, including Hybla Valley Farm, into suburban neighborhoods. Plans were developed to build an airfield, which would have been the largest airfield in the world at that time. However, these plans were abandoned and the land became what is now Huntley Meadows Park. The 1,261 acre-park was donated to Fairfax County in 1975 under President Ford. Today Huntley Meadows is home to a rich collection of forests, wildflower-speckled meadows, and wetlands.
