In 2016, Fairfax County historian Mary Lipsey, on behalf of Friends of Lake Accotink Park (FLAP), initiated a project to document historical aspects of Lake Accotink Park in Fairfax County, Virginia.
This website includes a review of historical markers in the park, notes on other points of historical interest, and a catalogue of artifacts housed in the park's visitors center. There are also links to additional information about the park and a gallery of images submitted by local citizens.
The research team, headed by Mary Lipsey, relied heavily on previous studies, public records, and collections. Assistance was provided by Fairfax County Park Authority employees. Other team members included Tom Kinder (photographer), Margaret Kinder, Jim Hawkins, Mike DeLoose, and Debi DeLoose.
