Fairlington Architect’s Map Reproduction—Now Available
Perhaps you have noticed the sepia toned map of the Fairlington community hanging in the North Fairlington Community Center. The original map was probably prepared c. 1943 by the architect Kenneth Franzheim for the Defense Homes Corporation and subsequently revised for Fairmac, the firm that managed the post-World War II rental community from 1947-1972. The map was updated by CBI Fairmac, the firm that
oversaw its conversion to condominiums in 1972-1978, and later revised by the Fairlington Historical Society (FHS) to better define the villages. FHS is now making 36” x 24” reproductions available for purchase for $40 each, postage included. Go to fairlingtonhistoricalsociety.org and select ‘Publications and Tours.’ Download the ‘Fairlington Architect’s Map’ order form and mail your form and check to FHS,
2776 Arlington Mill Drive, #150, Arlington, VA 22206.
