Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Location

To appropriately commemorate the struggle for women’s voting rights, the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial will be located in southern Fairfax County, Va., within the new cultural area of the Occoquan Regional Park overlooking the Occoquan River—a site that will become a destination for guests, tourists, scholars,  students, and historians.   As envisioned, the garden-style memorial will be a cornerstone of the planned park development which will include a banquet facility, enhanced marina, amphitheater, brick kiln and control house, restrooms, and a new parking area.
