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 (9751 Ox Road, Lorton, Virginia 22079) overlooking the Occoquan River—a site that is a destination for guests, tourists, scholars, students, and historians. As envisioned, the garden-style memorial will be a cornerstone of the park development which includes a waterfront banquet facility, enhanced marina, brick kiln and control house, restrooms, and a large parking area.
The Jean R. Packard Occoquan Center design features an exquisite, windowed, multipurpose building that functions as a banquet facility and also includes the Brickmakers Café and educational center. Information pertaining to other local history is on exhibit. The design image at the left shows the front of the Packard Center as viewed from the memorial and gardens location.
