The area that now comprises the City of Fairfax was first settled in the early 1700s by farmers migrating from Virginia’s Tidewater region for religious and economic reasons.
Fairfax County was established in 1742, when Alexandria, where the county court was located, temporarily became a part of the District of Columbia. The county court was established at the corner of what was then called Little River Turnpike (Main Street) and Ox Road, a major regional crossroads both then and now.
The little town surrounding the court was then known as Earp’s Corner and in 1805, by an act of the state legislature, named the Town of Providence. However, for years it was commonly called “Fairfax Court House” and was officially renamed the Town of Fairfax in 1874.
