Hunters Woods Exhibit:

April 2014

Reston’s 50th and Bob Simon’s 100th Anniversary Exhibit

Exhibit Dates: April 1 – 30

Location:  Reston Community Center,
Hunters Woods

Sponsored by The Reston Historic Trust and Museum, this exhibit commemorates the 50th anniversary of our town, Reston, and Reston’s founder, Robert E. Simon, who is celebrating his 100th birthday. The exhibit presents posters and framed memorabilia that depict the past, present and future of Reston, including the promise of the Silver Line Metro Station and redevelopment of Lake Anne, the original town center.  

It was Robert E. Simon, Jr. who saw this land in 1961, fell in love with it, and gathered the essential elements needed to begin the process of bringing the “new town” concept to Northern Virginia. This new town was named “Reston,” using the founder’s initials and the English suffix for town. The first Reston residents moved in to Waterview Cluster on December 10, 1964. During the 50 years since, the people of Reston have kept Mr. Simon’s dream alive while growing and changing. Today Reston is a thriving community of more than 58,000 residents who are able to live, work, and play at all stages of life.

Enjoy the exhibit, especially the art mural that was created by Reston’s children, and visit the Reston Museum on Lake Anne Plaza for more information on your town: RESTON.
