Welcome to the Fairfax Station Railroad Museum

Local History Tours

Knowledgeable volunteer historians lead tours through the many sites important to the area’s history, including some that are not accessible to the general public. Tours focus on places and events that were important to the local area, including the construction of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, the evolution of the local community and the critical role played by Fairfax Station during the Civil War.

Each site visit includes off-road, moderate walking. Some may require walking in wooded/forested areas. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress appropriately for expected weather conditions. Tours will be held rain or shine, except in the case of seriously inclement weather. On-site parking is available for participants.

The tour cost is $30 per person ($20 for Station members), payable in cash or by credit on arrival at the Station or through our online store (advance payment guarantees your place in the tour).
