    3 Quick Facts about Dulles

    1. Washington Dulles International Airport is located partially in Dulles (although its postal address uses the Sterling name instead) and partially in Fairfax County. The community derives its name from the airport.
    2. The airport in turn takes its name from former U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles (1888-1959).
    3. The National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington forecast office and the National Weather Service's Sterling Field Support Center are also both in Dulles.
