Historical Information

The planned community of Moorefield Station is located less than ten miles northwest of Dulles International Airport in Loudoun County, Virginia. It is a project of the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, which takes its name and mission from Loudoun County doctor Claude Moore (1892-1991). As the developers' packet for Moorefield Green notes, the community was envisioned as a walkable, sustainable development, "a model for 'smart growth.' " As of 2015, Moorefield Station continues to be a work in progress.
