Occoquan got its name from the Algonquian Doeg Indian word, meaning “at the end of the water” located at the Occoquan River. Before the Anglo American colonists settled here in 1765 it was home to many indigenous people who depended on the river for transportation trade and fish. After 1776 the colonist started an industrial settlement with grist mills and tobacco warehouses. The Merchant’s Mill was the first automated grist mill in the nation. It operated for 175 years until destroyed by fire in the civil war.
Today it’s an artist community full of vibrant shops and unique place to eat. Even a ghost walk and a town dock. If you come and visit Occoquan be sure to visit the historic house of the town founder a true historic gem.
