Built in 1873, this is the oldest brick two-story school remaining in Fairfax County. Its bricks were made at the Farr property across the street. Taxpayers may have shaken their heads at the exorbitant $2750 fee paid for its construction. The schoolhouse now welcomes visitors and houses the Fairfax Museum.
