The Fight for Historic Aldie

On February 15th the MHAA teamed up with other local preservation organizations to raise awareness of the threat posed by development in the village of Aldie. Approximately 200 preservationists, lawmakers, and citizens came out to learn more about the history of the village and how a proposed new fire station would impact the area. For more coverage of the event see the article in Loudoun Now here.
