Richmond Highway, also known as Historic Route 1, is the main street of southeast Fairfax County. What once served as an early trade route for farmers and George Washington’s road to the Nation’s Capital has evolved into the region’s major North-South thoroughfare. Today, the landscape of the eight-mile stretch from the Capital Beltway to Fort Belvoir is changing. Surrounding Richmond Highway in these districts is a diverse population of residents, businesses, and historical and cultural attractions.

With direct access to the Washington, D.C. region’s major employment centers, mass transit and historical attractions, Richmond Highway is becoming an increasingly popular place to live and invest.
