Fairfax, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Pozer Garden honors Kitty Barrett Pozer, who owned the adjacent historic Ratcliffe-Allison House from 1927 until she bequeathed it to the City at her death in 1981. Mrs. Pozer had a lifelong interest in horticulture and was the Washington Post's gardening columnist for many years.
Location. Marker has been reported missing. It was located near 38° 50.799′ N, 77° 18.274′ W. Marker was in Fairfax, Virginia. Marker was on North Street (Virginia Route 236), on the right when traveling east. Touch for map. Marker found missing on 2/20/2017. Remembering my own mischievousness as a kid, I would guess that this marker was taken by youngsters for the homophonic hilarity value of a sign that sounds like "Poseur Garden". Perhaps it was relocated to the front yard of someone they know from school. My condolences to Mrs. Pozer's family for this disrespectful act. Marker was in this post office area: Fairfax VA 22030, United States of America.
