Meeting House Lot, Fairfax County, VA

In the early 1850s, a parcel of land designated for a meeting house was deeded by free person of color, George Williams (aka George Cash) to a group of free black men. After the Civil War, several of these men went on to become founding trustees of Shiloh Baptist Church.

At this present time, no specific name or denomination has been attributed to this meeting house.

Shiloh Baptist Church, which is curently located on the South side of Gunston Road across from the main entrance of Gunston Hall, was originally located on the North side of Gunston Road on the cemetery lot.
