Why do people love Prince William County?

Less than 30 miles from the Nation’s Capital and firmly in the Northern Virginia metro area, Prince William County is Virginia’s second-most populous county. Named for William Augustus, the youngest son of King George II of England, many colonists originally came to Prince William County to escape religious persecution. In 1653, a land patent established Prince William County as the 3000 acres from the Occoquan River to Neabsco Creek but nowadays the county encompasses 360 square miles!

Connect with America’s history by exploring one of Prince William’s countless historic sites. You can stand where “Stonewall” Jackson earned his name at Manassas National Battlefield Park or visit a former Civil War hospital at Ben Lomond Historic Site that aided those who fought in the first battle. Learn all about the Marine Corps at the National Museum of the Marine Corps or take a day trip to one of the oldest houses still standing in Northern Virginia, Rippon Lodge, where George Washington often visited!
Not a history buff? Prince William has plenty of activities for the whole family, including 12 championship golf courses, craft breweries, great shopping, gorgeous parks and awesome concert venues.
