Archaeological Display to open on the Mason Neck Bike Trail

Fairfax County is home to many historical sites, and many are accessible by bike. The county recently received Transportation Enhancement funds for a map of civil war sites. At least their application was approved; we're not sure if they've actually received the funds.

On Sunday at 3:30pm the David Archaeological Interpretive Site Display will open on the Mason Neck Bike Trail:
This extraordinary site, located on land owned by Gunston Hall, was intermittently occupied for more than 13,000 years, from Paleoindian to possibly early European contact years. The site yielded thousands of artifacts, 27 cultural features and 7 radiocarbon dates, and a new understanding of the human ecology of Mason Neck.
Why not take a ride along the Mason Neck Trail, check out the ribbon-cutting at 3:30pm and enjoy refreshments at the visitors center. Here's a map of trails in Mason Neck Park. Information about the Mason Neck Trail project. Mason Neck inset on county bike map.
