Hear from some of our residents!
Welcome to another installment of “What is Your Story,”

Meet Betty Gore 👋

Betty was only a toddler when the stock market crashed in 1929. Her father, engaged in the NY markets, lost his clients but was able to get a position with the Department of Agriculture which changed the family’s trajectory with a move to Alexandra VA. Military life was central to suburban life and her experiences, including finding her love Herschel, Marine Corps veteran from World War II.

Read more about Betty’s travels around the world, how Betty and her growing family found their way to their home in Fairfax City, and the history behind her beautiful antiques and family heirlooms. Don’t forget to check out Betty’s artistic talents and watercolors on a site visit!
