Oakton, Virginia is steeped in both Revolutionary War and Civil War history. Many of the buildings and sites that were important during the wars still stand here today. In fact, Hunter Mill Road, which is a popular route for commuters, was also a major roadway for the Confederate and Union armies. It was the main pathway to the Fairfax Courthouse, a significant supply post throughout the Civil War. Today, Oakton is home to over 30,000 residents, features a variety of housing, and is close to shopping, I-66 and the Vienna Metro. Its top-notch schools, rolling hills and secluded forest properties give it a well-deserved reputation as one of the most coveted addresses in Northern Virginia.
