Welcome to Historic Occoquan, Virginia
& to HistoricOccoquan.com

Often duplicated. Never replicated.

Historic Occoquan is a community rich in history and consists of residents, artists, shops, restaurants, businesses, and a local town government.  It's outdoor dining, ghost walks, town boat dock and more are located just 11 miles south of the Capital Beltway on I-95 at exit 160 and then north on Gordon Blvd/Rte 123 to Commerce Street.  Directions to Historic Occoquan are available at Google Maps.

Occoquan is located at 38°40′58″N, 77°15′39″W and is accessible by car, boat, raft, bike, and foot traffic.  Access is available by road, river and the East Coast Greenway.

Occoquan is also conveniently located just minutes from the Amtrak Auto Train stop in Lorton, VA.  Unlike a plane or the car, the auto train provides onboard entertainment, a lounge car and a dining car as it takes both you and your vehicle on a stress free journey to Florida.  So when you next consider a trip to Florida, please remember your opportunities of shopping and dining in Historic Occoquan before you depart or upon your return.

The Town of Occoquan can be explored by this aerial view where you can click on shops and business for more information or you can access an on-line map of the town which includes a little bit of history and is provided by the Business Guild of Occoquan.  For even more history, the Historic Occoquan Self Guided Walking Tour has been made available with the permission of LaVerne Carson.
