Hilltop Village Center Street Names
Posted on Mar 17th, 2014 Comments (0)
 
We have been asked by several residents how the street names for Hilltop Village Center were assigned.  A very good question -- and frankly, we did not know the answer.  After consulting with Michael Galliott (the family who owned the property where the center is located) we learned the following --

"I named three out of the five roads in the shopping center by combining first names and last names from my family.
  • Clemaline comes from my grandparents Clem and Aline
  • Heneska comes from my great-grandparents Henry and Franceska
  • Gailson comes from Gailliot and Dyson (grandmom’s maiden name)
The other two are Old Beulah Street and Hilltop Village Center Drive."

Spring will be here on March 20th, and by weather indications one day soon.  We know it.  We really, really know it.  As the weathe becomes nicer, people want to spend more time outside.  The question of firepits (portable and permanent) is often raised.  Before purchasing or installing one, please read the following Fairfax County Regulations pertaining to firepit use.  If you wish to install a permanent one, ARD approval is required.
