Oakton's Vibrant History

Like many of Virginia’s towns, Oakton shares a rich history that dates back to the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, with many buildings that were used by both Union and Confederate soldiers still standing today.

Oakton Schoolhouse

The Oakton Schoolhouse was the third school to be constructed in this area. The first schoolhouse, built in 1854 when Oakton was known as Flint Hill, burned to the ground just after the Civil War. The second one was built in 1873 on land owned by Gibson Whaley, and sat at the intersection of what is now Hunter’s Mill Road. What is now known as the Oakton Schoolhouse was constructed in 1987 and faced the Vienna and Fairfax roads.

The school closed for a period in 1900 when its first teacher, Mary Sager, resigned. That autumn, the school opened once more, then run by Mr. Moss Love and assisted by Nellie Shawen. Due to overcrowding, an annex was built by 1904, but by 1905 the school had reached full capacity once more.

Hunter Mill Corridor

The Hunter Mill Corridor holds many stories about its Civil War past, having served as the major roadway used by both Confederate and Union armies. The area saw many tragedies, such as farmlands being decimated, families fleeing the area for safety, troops occupying family homes, and the Gray Ghost. The road itself was the main access to the Fairfax County Courthouse, which was a significant supply outpost throughout the Civil War.

The area’s families were split between being Southern and Northern sympathizers, and due to occupation shifting between Confederate and Union command, many families fled the area based on which side had control at the time.

In 2009, a historical marker was placed to honor this important road. The corridor had provided rich farmlands and water in abundance, both of which were vital to support the encampment and movement of the cavalry and armies.

One intriguing local story is that of the Gray Ghost. This was not actually a ghost but Colonel John Singleton Mosby and his Partisan Rangers of 20 to 80 men, who took revenge on any Northern sympathizers and used guerrilla warfare tactics to do so.

Nightlife And Restaurants

Oakton has a quiet nightlife scene, but those who purchase real estate here can easily travel to nearby areas if they want a night out.

Local eateries serve a range of delicacies from many countries, such as Yoko Japanese Restaurant located on the Chain Bridge Road and specializing in sushi. The Tigris Middle Eastern Grill offers a true taste of cuisines from the Middle East and offers a separate vegetarian menu.

For the nightlife scene, you can travel less than three miles from the Oakton real estate market to Vienna and the Jammin' Java venue, home to live music, savory snacks, and craft beers. On Lee Highway, you can find the Epicure Café, a Mediterranean bar and café featuring live music and open mic nights.

Those who purchase real estate in Oakton will also enjoy its prominent music scene, with many annual events taking place in and around nearby towns, such as the Fairfax Fair and Vienna's Performing Arts Festival held by the Wolfe Trap Foundation.

Oakton Shopping

Shopping is a popular activity for those who live in Oakton. The majority of shopping centers are located just outside the borders of the neighborhood, on Vienna and Fairfax Boulevard.

There is also a small cluster of service and convenience stores in the neighborhood along with Hunter Mill and Chain Bridge Roads, which intersect inside the Oakton Shopping Center. Here you can find Giant Foods and Tiger Mart. There are many local shops as well, including a children's boutique called Tabby Cat, and Abbey's Hallmark Shop.

Because Fairfax is only a few minutes away, many people who own Oakton real estate travel four miles to Fair Oaks Mall for shopping and dining. You'll find the best places to shop in Tysons Corner and the heart of Vienna, which has a variety and abundance of bargain and high-end shops to choose from, such as Wardrobe Rescue Upscale.

Although there aren't any specialty grocers in Oakton, residents can still find locally raised meats and fresh produce at the Oakton Smart Market, a farmers market that runs every Saturday and offers better deals than some of the local supermarkets. There is also the Vienna Farmers Market nearby.

Further into the wooded area you can find the historical Hunter House, which was built in 1890 and presently plays host to a series of free concerts called Nottoway Nights during the summer months.

If you’re looking for play areas and tot lots near your Oakton home, visit Borage Street Park, which has play areas with swings, tot lots, and semi-fenced-in areas. Old Town Square is another park that hosts small festivals and live music. It also has many lovely areas to sit and enjoy the scenery, as well as a splash pad.

There are also 71 off-leash parks made especially for pets, with fenced-in areas for your dog to run free and enjoy some outside time.
