Going for a walk down Main Street Fairfax to pick up some carry-out at one of our restaurants? Try this challenging visual three block scavenger hunt along the way!

 MAIN STREET SCAVENGER HUNT

 Start at the corner of Main and East Streets, walk along Main St. from East to West and match up these architectural details with an Old Town Fairfax building. HINT: Some buildings do not front on Main, and some of these pictures are taken from an unusual angle.

Name the building, identify when it was built, and answer the question based on signage near or on the building.

Check your answers by emailing historicresources@fairfaxva.gov. Good luck!
