About Reston, Virginia
Reston, VA is a community located in Fairfax County. Located to the west of our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C., the story of Reston is an interesting one. It was founded in 1964 by Robert E. Simon.
Simon’s vision was to create a community that was intended to be a post-World War II development for residential and commercial use. The concept was based on the Garden City movement. In its near 60 year history, Reston has become one of the fastest-growing communities in Northern Virginia and the DC suburbs.
With more people flocking to the area, it’s no surprise that Reston has seen a population increase over the years. As of today, there are over 60,000 people that reside in the community. But for most of the residents, they rely on their wells to keep the water flowing in their homes.
