Welcome to Remington — a small Virginia town on the crossroads of history.
The story of Remington is one which was repeated in thousands of small American towns as the nation grew around them. Situated on a scenic natural crossing of the Rappahannock River in Southern Fauquier County, between Charlottesville and Manassas, Remington was founded in the early nineteenth century. The town served as a transportation link on the Rappahannock River Canal and later the Orange and Alexandria Railroad before becoming the commercial hub of Southern Fauquier County.
During the Civil War, Remington witnessed numerous engagements, including the Battle of Kelly's Ford, the Raid at Rappahannock Station, and the Battle of Brandy Station — the largest cavalry engagement of the war.
