Bristow is located southwest of Fairfax County and about an hour outside of Washington, D.C. It is nestled between the communities of Manassas and Nokesville. Bristow was a point of contention during the American Civil War, when the area was better known as Bristoe Station.
Up until the turn of the 19th century, the Linton Family owned the majority of the land in Bristow. In 1894 their property was deeded to the Catholic Church and The Linton Hall School was built shortly thereafter. This land was parceled and sold to developers later in the 20th century in order to raise money for Linton Hall School.
Quality of Life:
Bristow is typified by single-family residential homes and townhomes. There are walking and equestrian trails at nearby Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park. Residents are also close to several golf courses including Broad Run and Bristow Manor Golf Clubs.
I-66 connects the northern part of Bristow with the rest of the D.C. Metropolitan area. Route 28 will bring residents living in the southern part of the community north to Centreville and eventually, Route 66. For those not interested in the morning and afternoon drive, there is a conveniently located VRE station minutes from Bristow’s center.
