History[edit]

1970s[edit]

The community was formed in the 1970s on what had been farm land, making it one of the first major communities near the town of Clifton, Virginia.

1980s[edit]

During the 1980s, the community went through rapid growth and development. More streets and homes were added to the area, and the present-day Fairfax Hunt was constructed.

1990s[edit]

The 1990s were about the time the community went to its maximum capacity of about 400 residents and 97 homes in the community. In 1998, an F0 tornado rolled right through the southern tier of the community. No homes were destroyed, but around 25 trees were knocked over. No deaths or injuries were reported.

Today[edit]

Today, the community's main roads are Saddle Horn Drive and Queen's Brigade Drive with other roads supporting them. It is served by Oak View Elementary School and by Robinson Secondary School. Fairfax Hunt is served by Fairfax High School.
