The Fairfax, VA Independent Living Community Construction Updates

The Fairfax was established in 1989 by the nonprofit Army Retirement Residence Foundation-Potomac (ARRF-P) as a community for retired military officers and their spouses. The Fairfax is proud of its rich history steeped in military traditions, and also proud to offer an opportunity for non-military retirees to call The Fairfax home.

Centrally located near several of Virginia’s renowned attractions, including George Washington’s Mount Vernon Plantation, Gunston Hall and the National Marine Corps Museum, The Fairfax is a short drive from downtown Washington, D.C., and the cities of Alexandria, Arlington and Falls Church.
