“The Old Town Hall was the perfect venue for my winter wedding reception, both inside and out. It was warm and inviting with old world elegance. I could (and do!) recommend this venue to anyone looking for a good value, charming appearance, convenient location and excellent service.” -Rachael G. Wedding December 2011

oth-weddingWelcome to Old Town Hall, the perfect place for a wedding, party or meeting. Old Town Hall is located in the heart of the nationally recognized City of Fairfax Historic District at 3999 University Drive.

Built in 1900 by Joseph E. Willard, the hall was presented to the Town of Fairfax in 1902. Willard, the son of a Confederate spy and a Union officer, served as lieutenant governor of Virginia and ambassador to Spain. His mother – “commissioned” by J.E.B. Stuart as his honorary aide-de-camp, with the rank of major – had been arrested for passing information to the Confederates, and met her future husband while in prison.

The hall immediately became the center of Fairfax social life. Although neo-classical in style, the hall tastefully combines Tuscan order columns with Federal-style details, such as the fanlight window over the front doors and the round-headed gabled dormers.
