The two were prominent politicians and former Union Army officers. The arrival of the Metro station in 1986 heralded a new era in suburban convenience, exactly a century after the town’s founding.
Today, the area continues to evolve. Developers and Fairfax planners would like to piggyback onto the success of the Mosaic District.
