Did you know that the original 1744 Fairfax County weights and measures for grain and corn, owned by our Lodge, is on display at the Fairfax County Government Center Museum? On loan for the 275th Anniversary of Fairfax County.

Stamped "The County of Fairfax, 1744", the weights and measures were used to stop the buying and selling of "false weights" of corn, grain, salt, and wine.

Gifted to the county by the King of England in 1744 and, according to the University of Virginia, these weights and measures are the only complete set of standardized weights and measures from England that still exist in the United States.

The Smithsonian Museum of American History has on display the smaller pieces, owned by our Lodge, of the weights and measures, used for measuring wine. Below are the pictures of that display.
