Cultural Resources Surveys of Ethels Pond Development
Bo-Bud Construction Company
Conducted complete Phase I, II, and III cultural resources surveys on this 6-acre area for a proposed housing development located in Fairfax County. As a result of our findings it was recommended that the area be considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and be considered a site of “public significance” under Fairfax County’s /Heritage Resource Management Plan.
Final results indicated that the property was once associated with a wealthy landowner and slaves between 1750-1830. The property was determined to be representative of early settlement in the Piedmont region during the colonial period around the time of the French and Indian War. Additionally, archival research indicates the landowner was the grandson of George Washington’s Godfather.
