Fairfax and many other Virginia Cities
Since its settlement in the 1700s, Fairfax has been at the heart of Northern Virginia’s government and commercial activities. The City of Fairfax’s rich heritage follows the development of the nation from a rural crossroads to a prosperous cosmopolitan area. Located just 20 minutes from Washington, D.C., the city’s attractive blend of commercial, office, retail, and residential properties combines the charm of a small town with the opportunities of a thriving urban area.
LDS Members make up 0.13% of the population of Fairfax. The state of Virginia has 90,738 members in 19 stakes, 157 wards, 40 branches, and 2 missions.
Jedediah M. Grant, an early missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was highly demanded in Virginia. He received three speaking invitations for every one he could fill in the 1840s. His listeners gave him a horse, clothing, and funds to assist his future preaching assignments. In 1841, there were some 80 members of the Church in Virginia. After Grant and his brother left the state in 1842, another missionary, R.H. Kinnamon, traveled to nine counties and baptized more than 100 people.
