Did you know that many of the remaining older structures in Purcellville show the influence that Victorian architecture had on the area in the early-20th century? While Lord Fairfax of Cameron issued the first land grant in the area in 1740, Purcellville was first settled by James Dillon in 1764. After further development with the addition of an ordinary (a combined store and inn), postal office, and blacksmith, the town’s name was established in 1853. These are the places in Purcellville listed on the National Register of Historic Places: the Purcellville Train Station, Locust Grove, the Purcellville Historic District, Rich Bottom Farm, and The Tabernacle-Fireman’s Field.
