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.
