transcribing gravestones, falls church, virginia

Freedom Hill members handed out race packets for the McLean 5K Run with the Warriors a few years back in support of Vinson Hall and their Navy Marine Coast Guard residence foundation.
Boundary stone repair and maintenance
D.C. area DAR chapters maintain many of the 40 original boundary stones that demarcated the District of Columbia. Freedom Hill is fortunate to have three stones within our chapter's geography. NW1 is off of Powhatan Street, NW2 is on Old Dominion Drive, and NW3 is off of Tazewell Street. All three are on residential properties.
