BHS around Town: The Burke Airport

May 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Did you know that the government first selected Burke as the future site of Washington’s Dulles International Airport?  Local historian and educator Mary Lipsey of the Burke Historical Society returns with the surprising tale of this ill fated venture and the community’s years-long fight to save the village.

The BHS is pleased to offer guest speakers to local libraries and other groups.  For more information, please see our Speakers Bureau page.
