Eastern States Public Room
Visitors may walk into the Public Room of the BLM Eastern States in Falls Church, Virginia, and discover information about recreation on public lands found just a short drive from the nation's capital. We provide brochures about the Meadowood Special Recreation Management Area in Lorton, Virginia; and the Douglas Point Special Recreation Management Area located across the Potomac River in Nanjemoy, Maryland.
BLM Eastern States houses the largest collection of Land Title Records in the world including more than 9 million historic records dating back to 1787. Many people visit our Public Room to consult this official collection of records as they research genealogy, questions of ownership, or other land title issues. For more information on how to research and request records, including Eastern States Patents, click here.
While visiting with us, you may purchase America the Beautiful Passes, which cover entrance fees at national parks and national wildlife refuges as well as standard amenity fees at national forests and grasslands, and at lands managed by the BLM, Bureau of Reclamation, and day use fees at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Passes can be purchased in-person Mon., Wed., and Fri. from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Appointments are strongly encouraged and can be made via phone or email.
Passes can also be purchased online at any time through USGS.
