Historic Blenheim - built c. 1858 by Albert Willcoxon - is known for its exceptional collection of Union soldiers' Civil War graffiti. To date, over 110 of these soldiers, hailing from 7 states, have been indentified. The Civil War Interpretive Center illustrates the lives of the Union soldiers who came through the house, as well as the effect of war in Fairfax. A life scale reproduction of the inaccessible attic, showcasing many of the best signatures, is a highlight of the gallery.
