In the heart of the nationally recognized City of Fairfax Historic District at 3999 University Drive. Built in 1900 by Joseph E. Willard, the hall was presented to the Town of Fairfax in 1902. Willard, the son of a Confederate spy and a Union officer, served as lieutenant governor of Virginia and ambassador to Spain. His mother—“commissioned” by J.E.B. Stuart as his honorary aide-de-camp, with the rank of major—had been arrested for passing information to the Confederates, and met her future husband while in prison.
The hall immediately became the center of Fairfax social life. Although neo-classical in style, the hall tastefully combines Tuscan order columns with Federal-style details, such as the fanlight window over the front doors and the round-headed gabled dormers. Old Town Hall currently houses a gallery for the Fairfax Art League and the Huddleson Library. Hours vary and are based on volunteer availability.
Adjacent to Old Town Hall and the historic Ratcliffe-Allison House is the Kitty Pozer Garden, with perennials and shade trees, a true oasis in downtown Fairfax. Old Town Hall is a popular and picturesque venue for a wedding, corporate party, networking events, and more. Check availability HERE. Download the reservation agreement form HERE.
