Maps tell us where to go, where we live, who we are, what existed before us and what is planned for the future. Chris Rooney, former Reston resident and local history aficionado, leads you on a visual adventure spanning Capt. John Smith’s first charting of Chesapeake’s tributaries in the Virginia colony to the updated Metro map for the Silver Line expansion to Dulles. Learn about George Washington’s involvement in the surveying of the Northern Neck Proprietary for Lord Fairfax, troops marching here in the Civil War, the Victorian-era community of Wiehle and the rise of 20th century development.


The Reston Historic Trust and Museum (RHT) was founded in 1996 as a community-based nonprofit organization that preserves the past, informs the present, and influences the future of Reston through its exhibits, public programs, and events including Founder’s Day, the Reston Home Tour, and Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta. RHT is located at Lake Anne Plaza, is free to visit, and offers exhibits and a gift shop.
