Fauquier Springs History Day planned in May

The Virginia legislature moved to the Fauquier White Sulphur Springs in 1849 during a cholera outbreak in Richmond. This print depicts the resort in the mid-1850s.
Three organizations will host Fauquier Springs History Day on Sunday, May 31.

The Fauquier Historical Society, the Afro-American Historical Association of Fauquier County and Fauquier Springs Country Club will partner to recognize 250 years of history, with a focus on the historical Fauquier Springs and its impact on the community at the time.

Guests will learn about the Fauquier Springs’ evolution from the world-class resort called Fauquier White Sulfur Springs to its role as a private military school, a hunting resort owned and run by the Chrysler family of automobile fame and finally as a country club with the county’s only golf course.

As a mineral springs resort, Fauquier White Sulfur Springs welcomed notable guests, including Presidents Madison, Monroe and Buchannan, Chief Justice John Marshall and Robert E. Lee. John F. Kennedy played the golf course multiple times during his presidency and terms in the House of Representatives and Senate.

The event will begin with registration at 11 a.m. at Fauquier Springs Country Club. The unveiling ceremony of a Virginia historic marker at the Fauquier Springs gazebo will follow.

A luncheon with speakers will begin at noon. Lunch tickets will be $10, with limited seating.

Exhibits will open at 1:30 p.m., with guided tours of historic properties, homes and sites at 2:30 p.m. The event will conclude at 4 p.m.

Optional golf cart tours of the course and facilities will be available for guests after the event. Visitors also will receive a voucher for a future complimentary round of golf.
