In 1799, the town of Haymarket began with a plan for 140 lots and 13 streets – a plan that was laid out by William Skinker, who owned the land, and the Virginia General Assembly. In 1801, the town developed and added a courthouse, clerk’s office and jail. Haymarket was chosen as the location for the new District Court, which would serve Fairfax, Loudoun, Fauquier and Prince William County. When the District Court system was abandoned in 1807 for the Circuit Court system, the Courthouse still remained an integral part of the Haymarket community as a multi-purpose building until ownership was transferred to the Episcopal Church and later known as St. Paul’s in 1833. In 1882, Haymarket was incorporated into Prince William County and today, many of the original buildings in the center of the town have remained.
