The 37th District is the heart of Fairfax. It takes in all of the City of Fairfax, including the City’s historic downtown district. From there it stretches south to the Norfolk Southern Railroad and west along I-66 and Lee Highway to encompass parts of Centreville. The district includes several vibrant business districts, attractive multi-family and townhouse developments, and single-family subdivisions with beautiful trees. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 80,255 residents live in the 37th District. There are numerous historic properties like the Blenheim House in Fairfax City (c. 1858-60) and Mount Gilead in historic Centreville (c. 1785). It is also home to the historic Fairfax Courthouse and the Fairfax County Government Center, which is the county seat for over one million residents of Fairfax County.
Many families choose to live in the 37th District, because of our quality public education system. The 37th District includes Daniels Run Elementary, Eagle View Elementary, Fairfax High School, Fairfax Villa Elementary, Katherine Johnson Middle School, London Towne Elementary, Oak View Elementary, Colin Powell Elementary, Providence Elementary, and Mosaic Elementary. We are also proud to be the home of Virginia's largest institute of higher education, George Mason University Mason was originally chartered in 1960, and is now recognized nationally as a Tier-1 research university. The interaction between the university students and the local population makes the 37th an unusually great place to live.
