On June 12,
2008, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors approved a
resolution supporting the nomination of the 14,185-acre
Cromwell’s Run Rural Historic District for listing on the
Virginia Landmarks and National Registers.
time, several property owners outside the initial boundaries
of the Cromwell’s Run Rural Historic District have worked
with the architectural historian to develop a proposal to
add 41 acres into the district by expanding the Northwest
boundary up to the Fauquier County and Loudoun County line.
11, 2008, the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (VDHR)
conducted a public hearing at the Marshall Community Center
regarding the merits of this addition to the district. All
property owners within and adjacent to the proposed boundary
were notified. No owner opposition was expressed at the
hearing. VDHR will present this proposal to the
Commonwealth Board of Historic Resources on September 18,
2008. This resolution will convey Fauquier County’s support
for this nomination.
