  • Historic Occoquan

    The Town of Occoquan began as a tobacco shipping port during 1734. It continued to prosper as a commercial and manufacturing center on the main east coast North-South trade route. In 1804 Occoquan was incorporated as a town and continued to thrive as a commercial and industrial center into the 1920′s. The Town of Occoquan continues to succeed as a location for arts and crafts shops, specialty stores, restaurants, offices, and isolated residential areas. Like the town of Occoquan, other towns in Prince William County (Dumfries & Haymarket) were born from tobacco and agricultural trade. The Town of Manassas became the seat of Prince William County in 1892 due to economic growth created from Manassas Junction connecting Washington, D. C. to Richmond on the Orange & Alexandria Railroad, and the Shenandoah Valley on the Manassas Gap Railroad. The Town of Quantico was incorporated in 1927. But its creation is different than Dumfries, Manassas, & Haymarket. Quantico was established after the arrival of the Quantico Marine Corps Base in 1917. Before then Quantico experienced growth in the the early 1900′s as a resort location, and the business of Quantico Shipyard (the biggest ship building facility in the county). Occoquan is now the host of Spring and Fall craft festivals, and visitors come to experience ghost walks, river tours, and the Mill House Museum. There are more than 100 commercial businesses in the historic merchant district. Popular tourist attractions: Occoquan Inn, Old Dominion Wine Shoppe, Madigan’s Waterfront Restaurant, Cock & Bowl, Coffee House of Occoquan, Blue Arbor Cafe, Secret Garden Cafe, Mom’s Apple Pie, Virginia Grill, and Tastefully Yours gourmet foods.
