The original Fairfax County Courthouse, built near the present Tysons Corner, likely marked the first European settlement in the Vienna area. The railroad reached Vienna in 1858 and provided impetus for growth into a real village. At this time, Vienna had one main road, known as the Old Georgetown Road, that twisted and turned to avoid mud holes and rocks.
When the Civil War broke out, Vienna became an alternate camping ground for the two contending forces. This was a confusing time for residents. It was hard to tell friend from foe, and the area changed hands so often that many families moved away for the duration of the war. The fifth skirmish of the war, part of the First Battle of Manassas, took place near the Park Street railroad crossing where the Vienna Community Center now stands. This incident marked the first time in history a railroad was used tactically in battle.
Despite the many changes that have occurred since Vienna became a town over 100 years ago, it has retained a sense of pride in community, and its people have worked successfully to preserve many of the traditions and institutions that give us the feeling of living in our own “small town.”
