Wat je gaat doen

This is your opportunity to see Lorton like a local. Even local residents are unaware of the rich history we have here in Lorton, outside of being known for its famous prison. Our tour will begin with a visit to the Workhouse Arts Center and learn about the suffragists who were imprisoned there during the fight for the 19th Amendment. Depending on availability, we will also visit one of Good Shepherd Housing's affordable apartments and hear how our mission has evolved with our changing community. Our next stop will be a special tour of Gunston Hall, home to George Mason, considered to be the Father of the Bill of Rights. We will conclude our day with a beer tasting at one of Fairfax County's award winning breweries, Fair Winds Brewing.

I'm the Director of Development at Good Shepherd Housing. I'm also a small business owner, who has lived in the Mount Vernon/Lorton area for almost twenty years. I ran for county supervisor a few years ago, and had the good fortune to learn even more about the history of our community as part of that experience, and I love sharing that history with others. Lorton is the home of the Gunston Hall, the historical Pohick Church, Fort Belvoir, and the Workhouse, to just name a few.

Over de organisatie: Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services, Inc.



In the DC metropolitan area, increases in the cost of housing routinely outpace increases in wages, leaving many to struggle with long-term housing stability. With community support, Good Shepherd Housing offers affordable housing coupled with customized case management to help families achieve long-term success. We also provide financial support for children's activities and summer camps.

Dit is een ervaring met sociale impact, waarbij 100% van wat je voor deze ervaring betaalt rechtstreeks naar Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services, Inc. gaat.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Lorton is the home of Gunston Hall, the historic Pohick Church, the Workhouse Arts Center, and Occoquan Regional Park, to just name a few. Besides these points of interest, we will also drive through one of the apartment communities that Good Shepherd Housing works, and we may get to visit an apartment if one is available to see!

Hi Candice! I’m sorry for the delay, I had a computer problem. Laura and I had a great time on the Lorton Past and Present Tour on Friday, 21 February 2020. We felt like we had the VIP treatment from the beginning to the end. You and your coworkers made us feel very comfortable and we enjoyed all the conversations and it was very educational! I will recommend any tours that Good Shepherd Housing offers with Airbnb for our friends and out of town guests. If you want to use me as a reference, I will be glad to add more accolades.
