History

One of Fairfax County's oldest communities, the area now known as Centreville was once at the crossroads of several important colonial establishments. James Hardage Lane realized the location's value, purchasing 350 acres north of Mountain Road in 1769. After his death, the movement to establish a town strengthened, and Centreville became a town in 1792. Real estate in Centreville developed steadily but slowly and ultimately played a strong role in the Civil War for both Union and Confederate troops. While post-war recovery was slow, motor vehicles development in the early 20th century led to the construction of the transcontinental Lee Highway. In turn, the interstate attracted a string of commercial developments and countless homes for sale in Centreville.

Parks

Bull Run Regional Park keeps citizens with Centreville homes busy throughout the seasons with wooded hiking and equestrian trails and campgrounds. Locals delight in a large playground, an outdoor pool, a disc golf course, soccer fields, a special events center and shooting and archery facilities. Kayaking is abundant here with an extensive 40-mile Occoquan Water Trail.
