Historic Blenheim is famous - for graffiti! A City of Fairfax historic site, Blenheim is a c.1859 brick farmhouse on 12 acres of land. It is nationally significant for the 120+ identified signatures, as well as art and poetry created by Union soldiers - a "diary on walls" providing insight into typical soldier life during the Civil War.

The Civil War Interpretive Center features a full- sized replica of the inaccessible house attic, showcasing one room of the never-covered graffiti. Exhibits focus on the impact of war in the area, the family and enslaved residents of Blenheim, and the Union solders that left their mark as they travelled through Fairfax Court House.
