History of Loft Ridge

We would like to thank our neighbor Association of Clermont Woods for providing us with these two histories of the Loft Ridge area.

Wellington Green history – This history was written by John Bee, 5608 Clermont Drive, with significant contributions by Mr. and Mrs. Don and Ardyce Kinsley. Mrs. Kinsley has published an article on Fitzhugh Lee, which appeared in the November 1985 – January 1986 edition of the “Fairfax Chronicles.”   John Lynch of Ridge View and later Clermont Woods, and Bob Drake of Clermont, also provided information for this endeavor.

Clermont Woods history 
- This history was originally printed in the September 1969 issue of “The Blaze,” and was written by Christine Gibson and William Mitchell.  It was reprinted as a supplement to the March 1980 issue of “The Blaze” by Editor Sydney Smith.  Both the 1990 and 2002 version of the “History of Clermont Woods” were edited and updated by Bob Drake.
