Reston Museum

Reston Museum is operated by Reston Historic Trust, and offers community exhibits and archives, plus Reston signature items for sale. As a volunteer staffed museum, we always recommend you call ahead to ensure there is someone there to assist you.

Each week we will give you sneak peeks into some of the locations on the 2017 Reston Home Tour....

Bromley Village Lane
Carolyn Flitcroft was perfectly happy in her Chadds Ford townhouse. But sometimes she mused about moving to a single-family home with a yard, a two-car garage, contemporary architecture and a bedroom and full bath on the main level. In the fall of 2015, Carolyn's casual search of local listings revealed a home that checked each box. A subsequent tour of the Bromley Village Lane property revealed a beautifully renovated kitchen and bathroom, which sealed the deal. Carolyn loves art and has filled the house with original pieces, many by artists who attend GRACE's Fine Arts Festival.

Hemingway Drive
Terry and June McGurn combined tow households when moving to Hemingway in 2014. They had an eventful three years, fully remodeled the kitchen and master bath. Three weeks after the completion, they had a fire that started on the deck, destroyed the back of the house and caused major damage to the rest of the house. They loved the neighborhood, so they were sure they wanted to rebuild and remain there. The necessity to completely rebuild the town home provided the opportunity to re-craft the interior exactly to their liking. Terry and June have begun the long process of filing this new home with memories and hope you enjoy their progress so far.

Fairfax County 275th Commemoration

We also have copies of this at the Reston Museum!

An updated version of the Fairfax County History Commissioner historical markers has been completed and printed in honor of Fairfax County's 275th birthday!

A big "Thank you!" goes out to Mason Mappers, whose students worked hard to put the map together.

Visit all the Fairfax County History Commission historical markers in the county. A newly published map shows you the way - featuring 52 sites and brilliantly designed by the Mason Mappers!

Catchin' Toads

A big THANK YOU to the Catchin' Toads for playing our Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta Launch Party last friday night! Despite the rain, we all were having a great time and dancing along!

Seemed like an appropriate way to wrap it up. No one was electrocuted in the making of this music.

In case you missed it...here is our scoreboard from the Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta! Look how fast some of these teams completed the course!
