Vienna Woods Exhibit at the Freeman Store and Museum

“The History of Vienna Woods, The Early Years: 1951-1955”. This exhibit is the first phase of one of Historic Vienna’s newest research initiatives.

Did you know that in 1951 $14,750 -15,500 bought you a three bedroom one bathroom brick rambler on ¼ acre in Vienna?

Come learn about the Yeonas Company’s involvement in Vienna’s rapid post World War II population growth, when Vienna changed from a sleepy country village to a growing modern Washington suburb. Explore the different house models offered and the special features and options. Find out the origin of some of Vienna Woods’ street names.

This exhibit will be up until early September 2012 at the Freeman Store, 131 Church Street NE, Vienna 22180.   The store is open Wednesday through Sunday, 12 noon to 4 pm, closed Monday and Tuesday.  Vienna Woods Pool has provided a very nice display case for a mini version of this exhibit through the end of the summer season so please take the time and stop by and learn more about Vienna Woods and this successful development.
