During the Civil War, this building was occupied by both Union and Confederate troops. In the spring of 1862, the Union Army took possession of the courthouse for the rest of the war. It was reported that the building was gutted and many records lost or destroyed. The building you see today was fully restored in 1967. Fairfax Circuit Court Historic Records Center is located in the Courthouse on the first floor in Suite 1600. They have records dating from the formation of Fairfax County in 1742 through the early 1900s. We are open from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. (closed for lunch from noon to 1 p.m.) Monday through Friday. All visitors to the Historic Records Center are required to show a Photo ID when entering the building and go through a security screening. Visitors will be asked to turn on any electronic equipment they are bringing into the Historic Records Center.
