First, a quick History lesson.
Dunn Loring is the earliest platted subdivision in Fairfax County and possibly Virginia. General William McKee Dunn and his wife Elizabeth Lanier Dunn purchased about 600 acres on the Washington, Ohio and Western Railroad (now the Washington and Old Dominion Regional Trail) in 1886. On September 22, 1886, the land was transferred to the Loring Land and Improvement Company, composed of General Dunn, then a retired Army brigadier general and former Judge Advocate General; George B. Loring, a former congressman and Commissioner of Agriculture; and George H. LeFetra, a Washington temperance hotel proprietor. The Town of Dunn Loring was advertised for residential sales in 1887, but began to develop as part of the Washington D.C. area just after WWII.
Location, location, location.
Dunn Loring is conveniently nestled in between Tysons Corner, Vienna, Falls Church and McLean with easy access to 66 and 495.
