Haymarket Real Estate

Haymarket in Prince William County, VA

Located in Prince William County Virginia, Haymarket has a rich history and is also a fast developing area for residential homes and businesses.  This formerly rural area was previously known as “The Crossroads” due to its location at the intersection of several Iroquois Indian hunting paths.  With the construction of Route 66 in the 1970’s, the town was now accessible and began to develop from a rural area to one more suburban.  In the 1990’s, The Walt Disney Company proposed to build a theme park here called Disney’s America, but residents in and around the area vehemently opposed it and the project was cancelled.  Now Haymarket has a burgeoning housing market, expanded infrastructure and many retail businesses to support the growing area.

Formally founded in 1799, Haymarket was chosen as the site for the area’s District Court however, in 1807 the Virginia General Assembly moved to a circuit court system.  In 1830, the courthouse was converted into and Episcopal Church. In 1862 during the Civil War, Haymarket was invaded by Union troops and burned to the ground, except for 4 buildings one of which was the church, and remained uninhabited until after General Lee’s surrender. In 1882 the town was incorporated and has continued to grow and thrive to this day. It’s location off of Route 66 and Route 15 has attracted commuters wanting to live away from the city but have easy access to it. The Haymarket Museum is a free venue that chronicles the town’s history located in town.
