About the Project
In the past fifty or so years, Northern Virginia has undergone a sweeping socio-economic, population and environmental transformation as the region developed from largely a rural village into a sprawling metropolis. I am hoping to create an online digital collection of materials that will document that transformation and allow students and other interested researchers, scholars or the general public to interact with and study the materials in the digital collection.
This project loosely defines the Northern Virginia region to include the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William along with the independent cites of Falls Church and Alexandria.
My initial version of this project was hosted by Northern Virginia Community College.
