The College is named in honor of Thomas Lord Fairfax VI, who in 1747 established his residence, Greenway Court, at nearby White Post. For 34 years, Lord Fairfax managed his vast property of more than five million acres that extended from Virginia's Northern Neck to Fort Duquesne, now Pittsburgh. A respected force in the formation of the new America, Lord Fairfax died at age 88 in 1781.
