The name Occoquan elicits a rich history. It is derived from a word used by the Algonquian natives meaning “at the end of the water.” The Occoquan River played a significant role for both its native inhabitants and British colonists. The river was integral in transportation and trade, and allowed for the establishment of gristmills and warehouses along its banks.
