Restonians now have a chance to own a piece of their community’s history.

Reston Museum, which is located at Lake Anne Plaza, will hold a raffle over the next month for a chance to win vintage plates that were used at the Bowman House during the early years of Reston’s formation.

Tickets are $5 for one raffle entry and $20 for five entries. They are available for purchase throughout March.

All proceeds from the raffle will benefit Reston Museum, a nonprofit organization that aims to preserve Reston’s past, inform the present and influence the future.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday at 1639 Washington Plaza.

Located at what is now an office park on Bowman Green Drive, the Bowman house was built in 1941 and operated as a distillery. The house was used by Robert Simon, Reston’s founder, in the 1960s, as he began planning Reston. It was renovated into an office park in 1984, according to Reston Museum.
