Dunn Loring, Virginia, the earliest platted subdivision in Fairfax County was founded in 1886. General William McKee Dunn and his wife Elizabeth Lanier Dunn purchased about 600 acres located on the Washington, Ohio and Western Railroad, now the Washington and Old Dominion Regional Trail, from L.B. Clarke and his wife on June 8, 1886. On September 22, 1886 the land was transferred to the Loring Land and Improvement Company, composed of General Dunn, then a retired Army Brigadier General and former Judge Advocate General, George B. Loring, a former Congressman and Commissioner of Agriculture and George H. LeFetra, a Washington temperance hotel proprietor. The Town of Dunn Loring was advertised for residential sales in 1887. The Loring Land and Improvement Company built a railroad station and a post office, but shortly thereafter General Dunn died and the development stagnated.
