In 1981, the City of Fairfax Council appointed five citizens as directors to form an organization that would assist the City with historic matters. Today, the Board of Directors number 20 persons who serve as an advocacy group in close cooperation with the City’s Department of Historic Resources.
The mission of Historic Fairfax City Incorporated (HFCI) is to promote and encourage the appreciation for, and preservation of, the history and artifacts of the City of Fairfax as an experience central to the lives of the community. Functions include: awareness of the importance of local history and its preservation, cultivating public support , offering advice and recommending policies for use and operation of the historic buildings and sites, seeking and applying for grants and private funding, and recruiting volunteers.
Meetings are held every 2nd Wednesday of the month (excluding July-August) and are held at the Historic Blenheim Civil War Interpretation Center at 7 p.m. For more information about becoming a Board member or becoming a member, visit our website.
