Tysons Corner in the 1960s/Credit: Fairfax County Public Library Historical ArchivesThe Reston Historical Trust kicks off its fall lecture series Thursday with a look at what Tysons Corner was like before it became the edge city it is today.

Reston Historic Trust Chair Shelley Mastran will talk about the role of real estate speculation and the evolution of the Tysons landscape, as dairy farms, orchards, and gravel pits became shopping centers and high-tech office buildings.

The free program is at 7 p.m. at Reston Community Center at Lake Anne.
