Welcome to the Mantua community website

Mantua is a suburban neighborhood of more than 1,500 houses in Fairfax, VA, about 12 miles west of Washington, D.C. Our wooded, park-like setting attracts nature-lovers. Our neighborhood encompasses all the detached homes in the area bounded by Route 50 (Arlington Boulevard), Route 236 (Little River Turnpike), Prosperity Avenue, and Pickett Road, but not homes accessed only from those roads. We are close to I-495, I-66, and two Metro stations, Dunn Loring and Vienna.

The Mantua Citizens' Association (MCA) is a nonprofit, non-stock corporation to encourage and foster among its members a spirit of mutual cooperation and assistance; to promote a sense of civic responsibility; to be the means for the community to act together on civic matters of mutual interest to its members; and to organize for the promotion of social welfare. We welcome residents, non-resident property owners, and tenants within our geographical boundaries to join us. Top Ten Reasons to Join MCA

Because of the Covid virus most MCA activities were suspended in 2020 and early 2021.  The last newsletter was sent in January of last year.  We hope that as things loosen up (and folks get vaccinations and boosters) community activities will pick up and communications to the Mantua community will also. 

We do issue short E-blasts to all residents who have indicated they wish to receive communications when a significant event(s) calls for this.
