Mount Eagle (plantation)
In later life, Bryan Fairfax was ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church in 1789, serving as rector of Christ Church in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, from 1790 to 1792. He bought the property and built Mount Eagle (south of Hunting Creek), where he lived from 1790 until his death, in 1802.
His son, Donald Fairfax was born there on March 10, 1818.
