Kingsmill Community


The name, Winster Fax, is described in a very interesting booklet, "Who's Who," by Bill Brown, which traced the street and subdivision names in Kingsmill:  "William Fairfax arrived in Virginia in 1611 with his wife, Margery. In 1619, he received one of the initial land grants in what later became Harrop's and Kingsmill Plantations. His 188 acres stood on the river at the western end of today's Kingsmill. He and his wife were killed in the Great Indian Massacre of 1622 at the home of Ensigne William Spence in Archer's Hope. His land was inherited by his four year-old daughter and leased for farming by her guardian, Thomas Farley. Because of poor handwriting, Fairfax's name was misspelled and shortened on a deed to read "Wm ffax ", which was then translated as Winster Fax."

In 1974, Winster Fax was the first multi-family community to be platted in Kingsmill with construction beginning several years later. The parcel contains 10.5 acres, bordered by Kingsmill Road, Mount's Bay Road and the 3rd Fairway of the River Golf Course.

There are 24 multi-family structures containing from three to six townhomes, totaling 107 individual homes, situated on wooded winding roads and cul-de-sacs lit by unique lantern light poles. The townhomes are two, three or four bedrooms and each has an attached garage and enclosed storage area. As a special amenity, Winster Fax has two outdoor hard surface tennis courts for the exclusive use of its residents and their house guests.

It is virtually a "small town," with families, couples and singles representing several generations. Some are long-timers, others recent retirees, first-time home owners and military families.  Surely, William Fairfax would be pleased to lend his name to such a desirable place to live.



Winster Fax is governed by a group of volunteer residents elected to the Winster Fax PAC.  The PAC serves as an advisor to the Kingsmill Community Service's Association (KCSA) Board of Directors on such matters as maintenance, painting cycles and landscaping.  Below are the names of the current PAC and their areas of responsibility.
