Prince William County extends from the banks of the Potomac all the way to Manassas in the west. It is bound on the north by Fairfax County and Loudoun County and to the south by Stafford County. The area was settled in 1731 and was a predominantly rural environment, with gristmills and tobacco warehouses. During the Civil War, the community of Manassas was the site of several historic battles, which are commemorated today by the National Park Service.
Today the communities of Prince William County are “bedroom communities” of Washington, D.C. It is a place with deep ties to America’s colonial past and wonderful place to call home.
