The charming town of Warrenton lies in central Fauquier County within an hour’s drive from the world class cultural centers, restaurants and fashionable retail areas of Washington, D.C. and its suburbs.
The County Seat, Warrenton remains the county’s shopping and business center as it has for the last two centuries. The county’s rich Civil War history can be felt here in walking the brick sidewalks of Old Town, or visiting the Liberty Heritage Museum, Old Jail Museum, and the Warrenton Cemetery where John S. Mosby and over 100 soldiers from the Civil War are buried.
While experiencing the community’s history, unique shops and restaurants like The Black Bear Bistro, Molly’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, and Denim and Pearls, can be found within walking distance of these heritage sites, as well as throughout the town. The town
hosts a vast array of restaurants from Cuban, Mexican, Thai, French, Irish, American, Mediterranean, Italian, a Wine Bar and more.
The Town was incorporated in 1810, and is named after Revolutionary War hero, General Joseph Warren. Today, the Town is host to many events, including First Fridays, Summer concert Series, Spring Festival, family-friendly parades, and the award-winning Gum Drop Square.
