Fairview Cemetery

Fairview Cemetery comprises thirty-four acres of land on the north side of Sperryville Pike (U.S. Route 522) in the town of Culpeper, Virginia. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the cemetery includes a mid-nineteenth century municipal cemetery, an early-twentieth century African American cemetery, and a monument to Confederate dead. The proposed improvements will create an emphatic entry, establish circulation hierarchy, and substantially expand burial capacity. Three open sites were identified: Entry Site, Ridge Site, and Stitch Site. The Entry Site establishes a presence on US 522, the Ridge Site takes advantage of the largest open area at Fairview and sets crypt walls into the topography, and the Stitch Site formally connects the historically white cemetery with the historically African American cemetery. A complete landscaping and signage package is also incorporated into the recommendations.
