Eight virtual exhibits explore Reston’s beginnings, planning, and development, the role of cultural and recreational activities, the significance of transportation systems to its location, and the community-mindedness of its founders and residents.
Items in this exhibition come from more than a dozen archival research collections held by the University Libraries. Each collection reflects the background, interests, and career of its creator, and permits study of some facet of Reston’s history.
This exhibition showcases many unique items of interest. Several different types of materials, such as photographs, drawings, texts, and audiovisual segments are presented. Digital versions of the items are accompanied by descriptive information for each.
