Project Plan for 2012
The Board of County Supervisors approved the following projects in the Foundation work plan for featured fundraising in 2009. We encourage Prince William County the Citizens and Corporations, residents and businesses to designate donations to make these precious sites first class tourist attractions.
- Rippon Lodge Historic Site Visitor Center---($2.5 Million fundraising goal) The Center will house exhibits on the history of Rippon Lodge and the colonial Potomac River. The Center will also include visitor services amenities, office space for staff, and collections storage.
- Bristoe Station Battlefield Cemetery Preservation—($150,000 fundraising goal) Historic fencing, interpretive signage, monuments and upkeep are needed to honor the dead as well as work on the entire battlefield, which officially opened October 2007.
Woodlawn House-($50,000 fundraising goal). Funds for Woodlawn will be used to stabilize and maintain the structure while applying for its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Properties. In accordance with resolution passed by the Prince William County Board of Supervisors in 2011, HPF will sell the property to a buyer for restoration, with proceeds from the sale used for future historic preservation projects in the County.
The Prince William Historic Preservation Foundation
is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds to supplement public monies which support restoration projects performed by the Prince William County Department of Public Works Historic Preservation Division. We protect County historic treasures through individual memberships, corporate and private contributions.
