Those Places Thursday: Occoquan

1804 Occoquan Town Plat

"A prominent stone located near this spot was the beginning point of the 1804 survey of Occoquan's boundaries.  A survey line running from the stone enclosed the 31-acre tract subdivided into streets and lots on the town plat.  Today the stone is buried by landfill, but in 1804 it was on the Occoquan River's Southern Bank."
