Encompassing the oldest section of the town of Remington, located near the Rappahannock River, the Remington Historic District is a remarkably intact and well-preserved late 19th- and early 20th-century commercial center that retains a significant collection of architecturally distinguished dwellings, mercantile buildings, and institutional structures. Located on the main line of the former Orange and Alexandria Railroad (now Norfolk-Southern Railroad), Remington, one of only three incorporated towns in Fauquier County, was important as both a commercial and transportation center for the surrounding, agriculturally rich Piedmont.
