Town of Remington...

The story of Remington is one which was repeated in thousands of small America towns as the
nation grew around them.  Situated on a scenic natural crossing of the Rappahannock River in
southern Fauquier County, between Charlottesville and Manassas, Remington was founded in
the early nineteenth century.  The town served as a transportation link on the Rappahannock River
Canal and later the Orange and Alexandria Railroad before becoming the commercial hub of
southern Fauquier.

During the Civil War, Remington witnessed numerous engagements, including the Battle of Kelly’s
Ford, the Raid at Rappahannock Station, and the Battle of Brandy Station – the largest cavalry
engagement in America's history. 

While today Remington remains a small town, it offers unique shops like Remington Drug Store,
Remington Variety Building (for collectibles, art & jewelry), and Morning Moon Alpacas, and
sandwich shops like the Corner Deli and The Farmer’s Wife Market.
