The Carters Run Rural Historic District in Fauquier County covers about 4,400 acres of scenic landscape containing estates, farm- and tenant houses, barns, silos, and other agricultural buildings, such as Waveland. The earliest standing building in the district dates from around 1790. The district’s development during the course of 200 years reflects its farming and agricultural land use and history. The Carter’s Run district is also associated with the activities of Confederate raider Col. John Singleton Mosby.
